I’m a twenty plus year survivor of Domestic Violence.
I don’t believe we will end domestic violence until we fully comprehend the cause of this cruel and inhumane treatment. A reflection back into the past allowed me to understand the cause or the heart of domestic violence.
The cause or heart of domestic violence is the people we have become growing up as children or are going into the situation. It is our experiences in life (past and current, good and bad) that are reflected outwards in our actions and reactions to others.
It is our personal choices and decisions that we have made or will make in life. And sometimes, it’s simply two people who come together with a downtrodden spirit and form a dysfunctional relationship or marriage with each other unknowingly.
