Domestic Violence Awareness

To: Men

From: Women Against Domestic Violence

Dear Men: October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and again with tears in our eyes we write this letter to you. Things have not improved much. Despite our best efforts to spread awareness women continue to die. Just this past week there was another gruesome murder. A man ran over his ex-wife with a car then stabbed her repeatedly. Her grandkids witnessed her murder, they will be scarred for life. I ask of you how can this be right?

Men, how can you hurt the person you profess to love? Why should the person who love you live in fear of you? That is not healthy. Will it bring you joy to look down at your woman in a casket and know she is there because you went too far? Life is fragile. Your job as a man is to protect your woman, not hurt her. That is what strong men do. If you find yourself hurting your woman, it means there is some weakness within you that you must work on.

Men we know that you are not all bad and we are aware that some of you do suffer abuse too.  We need you to stand by us in this fight. Talk to your peers, to your friends, or relatives who are abusers. Tell them domestic violence is wrong. Be an example to them. Show them how a real man treats his woman. Men we cannot win this fight without you. We need you to stand by us and fight with us to end domestic violence. You can start by sharing this letter. Together let us spread awareness

Are you Facing Emotional Abuse?

We have all heard the saying “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me.” But let’s face it we all know this is not true. There is  nothing more hurtful than to have someone who you love put you down with his words, insults you and say hurtful words that makes you feel worthless.

Many women suffer emotional abuse from their partners. A man will say hurtful things to a woman, which can literally tear her apart, break her down and make her feel as if she is not worthy of his love. Often he erodes her self-esteem and little by little she begins to think less of herself.

One thing ever woman must understand is that love is not supposed to hurt. If he hurts you emotionally then his kind of love is  not right for you. Be true to yourself and walk away because you deserve better.
