Real men do NOT beat their wives! And real women do NOT disrespect their husbands! Domestic violence is significantly on the increase, even our “celebrities” are not left out (Read Tonto Dikeh, and Mercy Aigbe‘s story).
It’s sad that the only way to vent your anger is by beating your spouse to stupor! It’s even more sad that some victims of domestic violence will choose to endure the torture from their partner without seeking for help!
Instagram user @marea.cache shared how she managed to escaped from an abusive relationship leaving with a broken eye socket and a knocked teeth! Her story below….
“A year ago Today My life was Almost taken from me! This wouldn’t have
been the first traumatic situation I’ve been through but by far the
worst Because My actual life was up for question I was beat on for
HOURS, Suffered 2 concussions! A broken eye socket, teeth knocked out !
And pistol whipped
2015/2016 Brought me to my lowest point in
life! I completely gave up on myself and let a Relationship dictate my
whole life, Separating me from friends and family! I was trapped,
dealing with EVERYTHING by myself! Not letting anyone know what was
going on because of the fear that I had over my life & the fear of
judgement from others.
Every moment I got to leave (escape) I
got caught and beaten. Everyday I woke up, I was mentally abused,
arguments, fight after fight! It was so draining! But GOD! GOD works in
mysterious ways … it took me a while but I faced it . Had God not
allowed my eyes to be open to this point I would have probably
eventually been dead.
it wouldn’t have takken another beating
because a gun could have been next, one shot and I could have been
gone. It has happened and I’m so thankful for his grace and mercy upon
I mean look at me, look at his healing power, look at the
growth he has put in me! The strength! I’m still able to Love, I’m
still able to Hold my head High!! I love me Again. I’m the most
confident I’ve ever been. I’m in such a peaceful state of mind! And I’m
using my talents and gifts that the lord has blessed me with!
I’m choosing to be one of the voices for millions of women around the
world facing the same situation who might not be as strong as me! I’m
here to let them know you can get help, you can speak up, SOMEONE does
care! You do matter, And you can And will get THROUGH ! Keep god first
and anything is possible ! Thankyou lord #2017 thankful for LIFE
