Domestic Violence and the Lasting Effect
There are so many victims of domestic violence. However, the victims seem to try to keep the happenings to themselves due to their embarrassment. I never really understood that at all. I always had the mentality that if it is done by someone else, then why in the world would you feel embarrassed about it?
Well, unfortunately, I have learned the reasoning behind all this. When you get brow beat, talked down to, and physically hurt, you start to feel that it is all your fault, that you are the one with the problem, not them. Logic mind disappears and a scared little victim appears in it's place.
The lasting effects will hurt you, your job, your children, family, and any relationships (friend or other) if you do not cope with this tragedy in the correct manner. There are many places that offer counseling and if you think that it will not help, think again. You will NOT be the only person there.
