Domestic Violence is a serious issue when dealing with the hands of your abuser.
Domestic Violence is a violent or aggressive behavior within the home, church or
workplace, typically involving the violent abuse of a spouse or partner. Domestic Violence
is also willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/ or other abusive
behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate
partner against another.

I was in an abusive relationship with my abuser for a long period of time. I suffer a lot pain and heartache in the hands of my abuser. He had me brainwashed. He can cheat on me with whomever he wanted too, but I dare not question him why. My abuser told me, “I better not tell anyone and if you do I’ll kill you” Now that stuck with me for a long time. I never told anyone of what he had did to me. I knew I had to fight back in order for me to get away from him. None of that worked out for me. He always said the right words to win me back. Yes, I loved him and I didn’t want to see him in jail. I kept everything a secret from my family.

I pray that if you are in an abusive relationship to get out and seek help. Yes, he may tell
you that he won’t do it again but is it worth losing your LIFE? He’s going to tell you all
the good words you love to hear, but is your heart worth losing a BEAT? Don’t be afraid
to seek help. It’s up to you to get the help. If you know someone you can trust, please tell
them. Always keep a journal of what is going on between you and your abuser.
I AM A SURVIVOR of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. I survive the hands of my abuser.
To all women’s around the world who is going through an abusive relationship, there is
joy on the other side.

God will be there in the midst of your storm.
