Surviving Domestic Violence

Surviving Domestic Violence

by Elaine Weiss

Domestic Violence

It is the most common cause of of injury for women, leading to even more injuries than car accidents.

People don't realize how serious this matter is. But it's bigger than you can even imagine.

It's not just the abuse to the victim, but for those who have children. Imagine the pain, the fear that they endure everyday and every night. Probably dreading to go home to watch their father/boyfriend beat on their mother.

Undergoing Abuse

Every relationship is different. Every person experience a different abuse. But nobe of it is right. Some perpetrators use children, pets, or other family members as an emotional leverage to get their victim to do what they want.

These victims take on so much.That over a period of time it is their reality because their trying to survive and doing as their told by their abuser is the only way to survive.

So many victims suffer long term from year's and years of living like this.

They are never easy go spot. In public, or at work, or even the person who introduced the two of you they can seem smart, trustworthy, and charming. They have a personality that draws people in. But as mentioned before in private a walking nightmare.

Many abusers learn violence from their family and repeat the toxic patterns with their partner or children.

They also are more likely to have legal it substance abuse problems.

How they Act

Each abuser is different that's what makes each case of domestic violence different.

Some abusers isolate their victims from family and friends, work, any other outside functions. An then you have some who are the complete opposite.

You have some who don't even care who knows that abuse theirr partner. Or speaks to them like their scum or like their daddy.

Some abusers have explosive tempers and become violent during an abusive episode; afterwards they become remorseful and try to woo their affection and promises to change, but the abusive behavior rarely stops.

Men are victims too

It's not just woman who can be victims of domestic violence. Men may experience domestic violence as well.

Which can include:

  • Stalking
  • Sexual assault
  • Physical violence

There has been cases where men experience the physical abuse that we see a lot in victims of woman. 28% of men experience intimate partner violence in the U.S.

Men face distinct hurdles getting help because they can be pathologized, not believed, or denied assistance from shelters created for women.

Challenges Men Face

Men ofte do not report domestic violence due to:

  • Fear
  • Shame
  • Denial
  • Stigma
  • Lack of equal treatment

Men normally minimize the abuse to protect themselves. They fear that they might be laughed at, humiliated, or reversely accused of being the abuser since men are capable if fighting back.
