It never seizes to amaze what some people will tell themselves to enjoy the feeling they get when they hit a woman. Did you know that there are some men who get high off hitting a woman? No lie. It is not different than the feeling people get when they are angry. They like it! How disgusting. They are one small step up the ladder of a child molester. Same cowardly actions same disgusting motives of control.
OK that was my rant I will settle down now and try to help those who have become victims in the aftermath of an additive wife beater. In our society we have started to address bullies in the school, and we all realize that when it is our child that is being bullied, we need to do something. It is not alright. Somehow, we see the women as an adult and we turn the other way. We say, “She can walk out.” or “Maybe it’s her fault.” But the truth is not that simple. We need to understand that violence can come in many forms and start ever so slowly. Women do not see it coming. Therefore, we need to be alert looking for the signs and symptoms of abuse. Caught early and dealt with can save not only the victim but also the abuser if they are ready to confront themselves.
I have befriended criminals, addicts, sex offenders, and many other people that society has condemned. Yet as you have seen from my rant, there is one thing that still turns my stomach every time I see it, hear about it, or even watch it on TV, that is when a Man hits a woman. Truthfully though, I am willing to put my own feeling aside and reach down and pick up a would-be man who is addicted to domestic violence. It really is an addiction. To help a person with such a problem is no different than any other addict.
The signs and symptoms are different, but the help is the same.
What ever lame excuse is used, it is no different than all the other addicts that try to cope with their addiction. Yet, Domestic violence is somehow viewed as a separate and personal problem that we think that we can not interfere with. Wrong! We should treat it no different than child abuse. That not to say that the woman is a child.
While some relationships are clearly abusive from the outset, abuse often starts subtly and gets worse over time. You may be experiencing domestic violence if you're in a relationship with someone who:
Your partner apologizes and says the hurtful behavior won't happen again — but you fear it will. At times you wonder whether you're imagining the abuse. The emotional or physical pain you feel is real. It is not made up in your mind. If this sounds familiar, you may be experiencing domestic violence.
The only way to break the cycle of domestic violence is to take action. Start by telling someone about the abuse, whether it's a friend, loved one, health care provider or other close contact. You can also call a national domestic violence hot line.
At first, you might find it hard to talk about the abuse. But understand that you are not alone and there are people who can help you. You'll also likely feel relief and receive much-needed support.
Leaving an abuser can be dangerous. Consider taking these precautions:
There are all kinds of Domectic abuse. but the fit the same patteren and types of abusers.
Domestic violence and abuse is about control and enslavement, but the Lord is all about deliverance, freedom and peace. Never doubt the power of prayer and God’s ability to protect and heal those who are suffering as a result of violence, both silently and out loud.
