ANYONE CAN BE A VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Anyone can be a victim of domestic violence, regardless of their race and social class. In the video above, Leslie Morgan shares her experience of abuse by the man she once loved. Listen to her story and how she overcame her tribulations.

 

WHY WOMEN STAY IN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS

There are a variety of reasons why women stay in abusive relationships, such as:

  • The safety of her children or herself
  • A lack of finances or financial dependence on the abuser
  • A fear of the unknown if you leave
  • A lack of a support system outside of the home
  • A language barrier outside of the home
  • A lack of awareness with regards to services and resources
  • Worries about deportation
  • Shame and guilt due to community’s opinion
  • Love for her partner
  • Belief that the abuser can change
  • Thinking that it’s her fault
  • Death threats if she decides to leave

Remember everyone wants to be safe and have healthy relationships, but in life there are circumstances that are beyond your control, and no one is responsible for another person’s actions. No one understands what it is like to be in abusive relationship unless they themselves have experienced it before. There is no way to be able to fully understand the experience of each specific relationship.

The decisions made by victims who experience domestic violence are not to be judged, rather they are to be understood, helped, and supported. Questioning the victim’s decisions, places the blame on the victim rather than the abuser. Choosing to leave an abusive relationship is a difficult, complicated and confusing decision. Women who decide to stay in an abusive relationship have often had their confidence and self-esteem destroyed by their abuser, and have difficulties coming to a decision with regards to leaving because of that. Whether a woman has chosen to stay or leave is not reflective of her character, but is reflective of her situation.
