The Heart of Domestic Violence

Last Updated February 21st, 2019

The heart of Domestic Violence is the people we have become growing up or are going into the situation. It’s our past and current experiences in life reflected outward through our actions and reactions.

Its personal choices we have made or will make in life and two people coming together who are downtrodden in spirit.

I’m a 20+ year survivor of Domestic Violence. It took years to heal in mind and spirit. I praise God he never left nor forsaken me. God’s love and strength have seen me thru the toughest of times.

How I Escaped an Abusive Relationship

Last Updated February 21st, 2019

This is a true story of how I escaped an abusive relationship.

He was addicted to Marijuana and spent what little money we had to purchase drugs. He claimed Marijuana calmed his nerves and when he didn’t have any, he became enraged. The slightest thing made him angry, and the target for releasing his inner rage was always me.
