Why Does She Stay?


I worked for years in Domestic Violence, and I have heard many, many stories of abuse.  I think that educating people about Domestic Violence, and that there IS help and that people DO care about their safety, and the safety of their children is the most important thing we can do to stop the violence.  There is away out, and people around you will help find it.
I have heard this story in many variations from hundreds of women.  There is nothing like hearing a victim’s story, and that she safely got out, to give a victim of abuse the courage to begin breaking their own silence and to begin planning their own way out.

    I’m going to share this video. Personal stories are effective.

  2. My daughter turned 14 this year, which means we have been safe for 13 years now. I stayed because I was backed into a corner. Most do not understand being made to feel so little and isolated from all who care. I am glad that we escaped. I may need to write about that. It was a journey that took many years to recover from. Thanks for sharing.

    • I understand your plight. Twenty seven years of working in Domestic Violence. For you and your children you have performed the most courageous act of your life. Feel free to read posts on DV in my archives and you are welcome to stay in touch with me. Hugs, Barbara
