I cannot force anyone to understand domestic violence if they have never experienced it. However, I can most assuredly give a sneak peek into the life of a DV victim/survivor and hope that someone will open their mouths or quite simply click the share button. To remain silent is to be complicit in this crime. I’m just sayin’. One more thing. I lived for nineteen years in domestic violence, I escaped, and I had to watch and think on these things as I made this post. Remember that.
Now take a deep breath and move on to the next one.
Take your time, clear you head and keep watching.
Enraging isn’t it?
As painful as it is to watch this tragedy multiply that by infinity and you’ll begin to understand how painful it is to live it.
