Personal stories dating abuse
Today is the first day of Domestic Violence awareness month.I have decided to open up to my readers and essentially the world and touch on my history with domestic violence and economic abuse.All of these things I had proof of as I recorded conversations of it but due to privacy laws it was worth its weight in s**t.Due to her being psychotic I eventually got the kids placed into my care.Boys learn to believe they have the right to use violent behaviors, and young girls learn to believe that it’s just part of being a couple.
My parents were committed to being great parents with the goal of rearing two strong, intelligent women and that’s exactly what my childhood entailed.
I am sharing my story because of the silence that exists about this matter in our community.
Women are suffering and surviving in silence, ashamed of their past.
People have told their stories in the hope that they will help others who are being abused.
There are stories from women with disabilities and from young people under 25.
