An Example of the Progression of Domestic Violence... (Connie J...)
It usually starts in your childhood.
Was your Mother a valued and beloved individual in your parent's relationship? Or was she only there to do your Father's bidding; often a verbal or physical "punching bag"?
Did you continue the cycle? How often did you feel victimized as a teenager - either verbally or physically put down, but they were "just kidding", in almost every relationship?
Have your adult relationships continued that same hamster wheel pattern?
Again, this is only ONE example - there are as many examples, as there are Victims.
We often emulate what we know - is it time for you to break that chain?
Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
