This is both unbelievable and unimaginable!
What could make someone unleash such hell on both family and self?
Domestic violence is so real and its infestation into our society is quite obvious.
Relationship and marriage is great but not by force!
If you are in a relationship/marriage where you and your partner can hardly tolerate yourselves and violence is setting in, there is no need to wait for things to deteriorate to the point of no return before seeking for help.
If you are in a violence infested relationship/marriage, seek help fast before your story becomes a tragic News report!
One of the first steps to take when in a violent relationship/marriage is to MOVE OUT/SEPARATE from the violence scene and seek help. You need to be alive to take further actions.
There is no shame in speaking out and calling for help if you are a victim of domestic violence.
Don’t keep quiet and bottle-up things within yourself, believing that the abusive partner will change.
Most domestic violence cases start with just a hit/slap and then graduate to using dangerous weapons and probably death. The more you endure, the more abusive your partner becomes.
Are you a victim of domestic violence?
Do you know someone who is facing domestic violence?
Don’t keep quiet or look away. Rather, speak out, get help, separate and escalate the matter!
Is it possible for a victim of domestic violence to be so used to being abused and takes it to be a normal thing?
