Someone you know RIGHT NOW is being abused.
The numbers are staggering…and this doesn’t even represent the ONGOING abuse!
1 in 4 women experience domestic abuse. For men, it’s 1 in 7.
As defined by Wikipedia:
Not all domestic violence is equivalent. Differences in frequency, severity, purpose, and outcome are all significant. Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical aggression or assault (hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining, slapping, throwing objects, beating up, etc.), or threats thereof; sexual abuse; controlling or domineering; intimidation; stalking; passive/covert abuse (e.g., neglect); and economic deprivation It can also mean endangerment, criminal coercion, kidnapping, unlawful imprisonment, trespassing, and harassment.
Wow…that’s a lot. What can be confusing is that abuse can be cyclical. Tension can run high leading to an act of violence, which is then followed by a period of reconciliation and calm. Most outsiders see the calm. As the recipient of the act, we do a good job of hiding what’s going on. We feel ashamed. We feel scared.
Abusers prefer to trap their subjects through:
- traumatic bonding to the abuser
- power and control
- withholding/restricting financial resources
- using children/family members as a bargaining tool
As a result of abuse, victims can experience various symptoms including:
- physical disabilities
- chronic stress
- chronic fatigue
- dysregulated aggression
- chronic health problems
- mental illness
- limited finances
- ability to create healthy relationships
- unworthy of true love
- post-traumatic stress disorder
- autoimmune diseases
- digestive issues
- eating disorders
Can you relate to this? Or maybe you know someone suffering and you’re not sure how to help?
