October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. I've written about this topic numerous years based on my own personal experience and awareness in general.
I moved forward with my life and I never looked back. Once I made that decision in March 2017 to done with him, I meant it. Healing from domestic violence in the form of verbal and emotional has been hard. I'm proud of myself for getting through that situation, but some of the emotional scars are still there.
As I mentioned before just because a person doesn't put their hands on you doesn't mean they're not abusive. Please understand abuse comes in different forms. It's known that most abusers typically start with verbal, emotional, and mental abusive that can lead to physical abuse.
People typically wonder why does she stay? Honestly the question should be why another person think it's okay to mistreat and hurt some they claim to love? Speaking for myself I stayed off an on for a little over a year. Like many women I thought that he would change. Every argument was followed with a I love you and a broken promise. Thankfully I decided enough was enough and walked away.
