Default Just one other Domestic Violence Story...

I came upon this story on "Love What Matters" which I follow on Facebook.

Fortunately I have never been in this situation but I know some of you have been and maybe some are still struggling.
It's a little graphic but still worth reading this short article.
Please get out of this kind of relationship and call for help, ask for help and come here to get more support
Follow your heart but take your brain with you...

...here is where you can find help if you feel you have no one to turn to and/or no place to go:

Crisis intervention, information about domestic violence and referrals to local service providers to victims of domestic violence and those calling on their behalf.

I heard versions of that story from MANY people in prison. Nobody deserves that.

The hardest part is leaving. The saddest part is that most women won't leave too scared of what is next, what they will do if they leave...how things might be different.

I worked at a facility teaching classes for success...one of the stories that stuck out and made me finally wake up to some of the abuse I had endured....a woman who finally went to back to school for her children left her husband of 12 years. She was terrified. He hurt her all the time. She finally got away, but with no help, she stayed in the same home. No one warned her to help her understand the risks, or make a safety plan. No one told her to be on guard that this is the most brutal and crucial time to be hyper-vigilant as you took their power away. This is when they strike. He came on Christmas. 8 years ago, he murdered her in front of the kids in their living room and then turned the gun on himself. This was soon to potentially be my fate had I not left. The abuse only gets worse. The longer we stay in unsafe situations the longer we put ourselves and children at risk. It is scary to leave. Make sure you have a good safety plan. Make sure you work with an agency and that they help you or that you have some level of support. I hope that there are woman, men, and children out there that are finding safety and a bit of peace away from these terrible and tumultuous situations.

Sending love to all of those who don't think they can leave. Sending hope to all of those who have felt they have lost it. Sending direction and guidance as you find your way through the chaos and into calm. There are local resources in your town. Shelters, and advocates. There are national hotlines that patchouli listed. There is love, there is help, there is hope, there is support!
