Are You The Victim of Domestic Abuse?

imagesDO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS APPLY TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP?

CONTROLLING..
YOUR MATE HAS TO CONTROL EVERYTHING YOU DO OR THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY.

ISOLATED..
YOUR INDEPENDENCE HAS BEEN DESTROYED. YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO MAKE NEW FRIENDS AND YOUR OLD FRIENDS AND FAMILY HAVE, LITTLE BY LITTLE, BEEN PUSHED OUT OF YOUR LIFE.

AGGRESSIVE WITHOUT REASON..

YOUR MATE CAN GO OFF WITHOUT WARNING. YOU HAVE BEEN SLAPPED, PUNCHED, VERBALLY ABUSED, AND BRUISED. THE BRUISES ARE IN PLACES THAT CAN’T BE SEEN BY OTHERS. THE ABUSE OFTEN COMES WITH HEAVY DRINKING BUT NOT ALWAYS.

FULL OF REMORSE..
AFTER A ROUND OF PHYSICAL AND VERBAL ABUSE YOUR MATE IS FULL OF REMORSE. PROMISING THINGS WILL BE DIFFERENT. COMING HOME ON TIME, BRING YOU GIFTS.

HUMILIATED IN FRONT OF FRIENDS..

YOU ARE ROUTINELY HUMILIATED IN FRONT OF FRIENDS AND FAMILY. ESPECIALLY HIS BUDDIES. YOUR LOOKS, YOUR COOKING AND EVERYTHING YOU DO IS RIDICULED.

CHARMING TO OTHERS..
YOUR MATE IS FRIENDLY AND CHARMING TO OTHERS, WITH A READY JOKE AND A SMILE. NO ONE BELIEVES YOU WHEN YOU TELL THEM YOUR BEING ABUSED. YOU EVENTUALLY TELL NO ONE FOR FEAR OF NOT BEING BELIEVED.

WALKING ON EGG SHELLS..
YOU WILL AVOID CONFRONTATION AT ANY COST, CHANGING YOURSELF, YOUR STYLE, YOUR IDEAS AND OPINIONS JUST TO AVOID CONFRONTATION.

IT KEEPS GETTING WORSE..
YOU NEVER FEEL LOVED, PROTECTED, AND APPRECIATED. YOU CAN’T SEE A WAY OUT.

DID YOU SEE YOURSELF IN THE EXAMPLES OF ABUSE ABOVE? REMEMBER, YOU ARE A PRECIOUS CHILD OF GOD. YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY. GET OUT BEFORE IT IS TO LATE. YOUR CHILDREN MIGHT BE NEXT.

DON’T THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO OR SAY. DON’T THINK ABOUT YOUR FUTURE. ANYTHING WILL BE BETTER THEN THIS SOUL SHATTERING LIFE. IT WILL WORK OUT SOMEHOW. THERE IS HELP OUT THERE. JUST CALL THE NUMBER BELOW AND SAY, “I NEED HELP, PLEASE HELP ME.”
