A Brave Girl to Try

It takes a huge amount of courage for victims of Domestic Violence/Abuse to come forward and share their story because of the shame. Instead of being concerned about their safety and wellbeing their biggest concern seems to be being judged by others. I remember back when I was in the situation that I allowed myself to be in which was abusive mentally, physically, and emotional. Fear was my biggest concern then shame and of course being judged. I was living a lie wishing and hoping that things will get better as well as making excuses for him. I found myself contributing to this fake Picasso that this man had painted of himself failing to realize that all he did was changed the frame. My belief is that people that has never been hurt or experienced any form of abuse are usually the first to call you stupid and to tell you how crazy you are for staying in such situation without knowing. Never Say Never. Before you know it you’ll be just like me saying, “I’ll never allow a man to put his hands on me neither will I stay with a man that was abusing me.” Yet still I allowed it for 3 1/2 years. It took me three and a half years to finally be at a place where I can smile without force, a place where I can finally remove the mask that I’ve been hiding behind for so long because of comfort. A place where I will no longer hurt others because someone else hurt me. No longer am I living in fear which is only False Evidence Appearing To Be Real. Break The Silence. Speak Up. You Are Not Alone
