The month of October is a month where we reflect on domestic violence.
There are always ALWAYS other options available to us!
You don't have to live like this!!
Sometimes we ignore the signs, and we say to ourselves that it is not so bad!
He's sorry and he won't do it again!
Until the next time when it's worse...
Please! You are worth more than he makes you feel! You are worth getting out of there, and living the life you planned for yourself!
If you answer YES to any of these questions, you are a domestic violence victim.
* Has your partner or ex-partner ever hit you or physically hurt you?
*Has he ever threatened to hurt you or someone close to you?
*Does your partner ever try to control you by threatening to hurt you or your family?
*Has your partner ever forced you to have sex when you didn't want to? Has he ever refused to practice safe sex?
*Has he/she ever tried to restrict you freedom or keep you from doing things that were important to you? (like going to school, working, seeing your friends or family)
*Does your partner frequently belittle you, insult you, and blame you?
*Do you feel controlled or isolated by your partner?
*Do you ever feel afraid of you partner? Do you feel like you are in danger? Is it safe for you to go home?
*Is your partner jealous? Does he frequently accuse you of inﬁdelity?
You don't have to stay a victim. You CAN get out of there!!
A long long time ago in a different lifetime I also could say yes to many of these questions!
I got out of there, and I have never looked back!
I now know that I was only one who could change things!
Nobody else could help me before I decided I wanted help!
I found the questions here: Womanspace: Screening Questions
