Suffering in silence behind closed doors with verbal, emotional and physical abuse is unhealthy and dangerous.
I know you believe that special person in your life whom you love with all heart will "someday" return to the person they were when you began the relationship. But it's not likely to happen.
Did you ever stop and ask yourself, how do you stay with a person who is harming you? Calling you names or threatening you one minute only to change and say they've forgiven you, the next. What exactly are you being forgiven for? What did you do to deserve being screamed at or hit and thrashed about a room by you hair? Or told by the person professing their love, if you ever leave them, you'll be killed.
I know you believe the person you love so much would never truly go so far as to kill you like those other women we read about in the news who go missing or are found dead, think again! Kelly Rothwell, Jacque Waller, Gayle McCaffrey, Susan Powell, Renee Pagel, Stacy Peterson, Lisa Stebic, Amanda Graham, Hope Meek, Patty Vaughan, Nicole Fields, Kimberly Langwell, Sheena Morris, Valarie Calderon, Venus Stewart, Angel Downs, Lisa Shuttlesworth, Amanda Leher, Michelle Parker the list is endless of women and mother's just like you who refused to believe they'd be murdered by their boyfriend or husband's claiming to love them, literally to death. Each of these women thought exactly as you do while they were alive. That it could never happen to them.
If you are in an abusive relationship, why don't you begin by being honest with yourself for once and admit your relationship is now dangerous. That you may not have the opportunity to wake-up alive today or the following morning. That you will enrage the person who is abusive so much you'll either be murdered in cold blood and if you have kids they will be motherless. Is that what you really want, to die or to be a name and a number on a missing person's report listed on a national data base?
How about today, you look in the bathroom mirror and tell yourself, you're worth more than being a punching bag.
How about today, you tell yourself, Enough!
It is time for you to remove the dangerous toxic abusive person from your life.
It is time for you and your precious children to leave the violence that is holding your live's hostage.
It is time for you to realize that there may not be a next time.
It is time for you to get the hell out of your own way, wake up, and understand the reason's you do not "feel safe," is because you are not!
