The majority of women who experience domestic violence don’t want to admit that their family is falling apart due to that. They won’t acknowledge that the pain they go through is the result of anything even close to domestic violence. And, to protect their family, they are willing to suffer for years.
This kind of thinking is wrong. The partner that uses force against their family will always do that. They aren’t going to stop after a couple of years. If you are getting beaten on a regular basis, then you are a victim, and you should do something to stop that.
How to recognize domestic violence
Any partner that tries to control their family through beating and fear is a criminal. They usually isolate their family from others, as third parties are not afraid to point out the wrong things in the family. This isolation of victims means that they get too scared to seek help because they have no one that is close enough.
Some victims love their spouses to the extent that they don’t see their violence as a problem. They know it is wrong, but they still go back to it. Individuals like this either think that they don’t have any other option or their love toward the assailant clouds their judgment.
The victim isn’t guilty of the abuse
A lot of women think that it’s their fault for receiving punishment from their husbands. That is not the truth. If the man beats the women for no reason (there is no reason for using violence at all), then they are guilty of that. The victim is just an individual who is afraid to complain about it.
If you experience domestic violence, then you should report it. Seeking help from our organization (or other groups that support victims) will help you in several ways. The most critical form of assistance is protection from the violence while the court process is active. And don’t worry, your children will be better off without a father who abuses them, so don’t be afraid to report the husband as you will get the custody of the children.
