I wanted to dedicate this post to this beautiful angel, Starsha Williams 💜who died March 2016 out here, her boyfriend shot her in the back of her head to her death. She was a mother and a woman of faith. Place Purple Hearts below as we extend love and blessings to her and her family. If you are a victim of domestic violence, it's never too late to leave, don't wait until it is. www.thehotline.org If you are an overcomer like myself, I'm sure you are just as thankful to still be alive. 💜💜💜 #domesticviolenceawareness#krystalthepoet @tangelo_1
#domesticviolenceawareness#domesticviolence The night I finally decided to leave, they tryed to smother me with a pillow.. that was the final straw, i couldn't take anymore.. i called my mom and cryed and talked to her for a couple hours. Then I took $300 and left to stay in a hotel for two nights. I left at 3 in the morning.. They had pinned me on the bed.. i was on my stomach and they were forcing my head into the sheets and blankets and they wouldn't release right away when I yelled I couldn't breathe. I was able to get my legs off the bed and I kicked and squirmed, which made them angry. So eventually they kind of.. threw me on the floor with some pillows. Then they got back on me and I struggled and then they grabbed a pillow and put it in front of me on the floor and pushed my face down into it. I freaked out. They meant it. They Wanted it. The fact that they could..and that it would be thst easy, terrified me. Eventually they released me.. Idk whst happened in between but I waited until they fell asleep. I packed what I could and I Left. I stayed in a woman's shelter for about a month. Please don't let this be you. GET OUT. Get help. Make them get help. Recognize red flags and TELL SOMEONE! Tell someone. Tell someone. They can help you. I couldn't have made it without my friends.. You are not alone.
#domesticviolence#domesticviolenceawareness Not sure what to say but this needs more than a journal entry. (Will be continued) I endured months of verbal and emotional abuse. They talked s*** about my family and how I was raised; About me and every little decision I made. Every little mistake I made got blown out of the water and I began to believe everything they said I was. I remember one time in particular. .. i broke someones glass cup in their sink; They laughed it off but my abuser.. stormed in, pissed, and started verbally bashing me and said my mom never got glassware because I would've broke it all and how clumsy I was and so on. I remember feeling so... broken. I had no esteem and thought I couldn't do anything on my own. Then it got worse. They began to get physical. They began threatening me, to hurt me, tie me up and leave me Etc....I knew they were capable. One night.. they pinned me down and sat on me with my arms pulled back. I was stuck on my stomach and my hair was in my face and i couldn't breathe and i began freaking out and started sobbing, they released me. My arms were really messed up for awhile, My hands tingled so bad it hurt, i couldn't feel them and I couldn't open them, my hands were stuck in a cerebral-palsy like position. I was scared and I was hyperventilating and crying and... they apologized. They felt aweful. Said it wouldn't happen again.. It did. They were a lot stronger than me, they pinned me down on the floor and if i struggled they would tighten their grip until i lost breath or began crying or freaking out. . All i ever had to do was scream, someone would have heard me, helped me. But i didn't.. Don't let this be you. GET OUT NOW. Nothing changes if nothing changes. Be the change. If they love you they WILL get help. But they have to do it for them too.. You're not alone and there is IS help and people who care. You don't have to be alone..
For anyone who has asked what they can do or how they can help - the most I can ask for is prayer. God doesn't want us to live in fear and I know that many people are over various things. So my wish is that we can all pray for eachother to not live in fear and be strengthened by our prayer, trust and belief in God. ✝️🙏🏻🛐#prayforeachother #donotbeafraid#bts#breakthesilence#domesticviolenceawareness#justiceforall
@Regrann from @irememberabuse - What it looks like A man behaves violently, destroying objects in the home, and feels he was justified in doing so because his wife doesn’t listen to himA young woman cheats on her boyfriend and feels unapologetic for it because she thinks he looks at other women too much.A parent spends the month’s grocery budget on luxury items and is unapologetic for it.A teenager refuses to speak to a friend and feels justified in that action because she fears that friend does not love or respect her.A man steals from a colleague and believes it is justified because his colleague is more successful than him.A woman slanders her neighbor because she feels like that person deserves it How it Feels Nons often feel exasperated, shocked and outraged that the Personality-Disordered individuals in their lives can behave so callously or hatefully. They may begin to hit back because they feel so hurt or taken advantage of. Or they might feel depression that they are treated so poorly and have failed to convince the other person to treat them with respect. What NOT to do Don’t assume that the personality-disordered individual sees things the way you do or thinks the way you do.Don’t try to correct another person’s way of thinking.Don’t blame yourself or take responsibility for how the other person feels or how they behave.Don’t get angry and try to force them to apologize. Even if you have a legitimate complaint, chances are your concerns are like a foreign language to the Personality-Disordered individual.Don’t allow abuse to go on in a sustained way.Don’t try to fix the problem -or try to change yourself to solve everything. www.outofthefog.com #irememberabuse#maybehedoesnthityou#abusiverelationship#love#domesticviolence#narcissist#narcissisticabuse#narcissistic#npd#relationships#battles#survivor#domesticviolenceawareness#superioritycomplex#quotes#physicalabuse#psychopath#sociopath#mentalabuse#relationships
ANNOUNCMENT: This has been in the works for a couple weeks now and I was going to do a video about it but I thought this way I can get it all down! I have decided to change the 42 week challenges and raising funds until white ribbon DAY to finishing up on White Ribbon NIGHT! (Friday 31st July) this is due to some family issues as well as personal issues. It clearly proves time and time again that we cannot control our future or what is going to happen for us but all you can do is live in the present and continue to do things until it either no longer serves you or life pulls you in a different direction! In this case it is life being a slut 😳 anyway I am still hoping to raise $5000 for @whiteribbonaust and I still have lots of challenges to get through but I am also excited to share that I will be organising a white ribbon night ball! We are still working on the details but we are hoping to hear from local businesses who would like to be apart of this night which will include a fashion show, silent auction and some more! I also will be finishing up this event by running my FIRST HALF MARATHON @runmelbourne and would love to have anyone sponsor me to motivate me to do it! Any amount will help! All moneys will be going to white ribbon and I believe we can go over the $5000 mark! SO WHOS WITH ME!!! #challengeme#raisingfunds#helpmehelpthem#letsstopviolence#challenge#fundraiser#whiteribbonday#letsmakeachange#letsstopviolence#fitness#fitnessmotivation#halfmarathon#runningforacause#runningtraining#helpmehelpthem#domesticviolence#domesticviolencesurvivor#domesticviolenceawareness#fashionshow#ball
PSA::::I have been a victim of both physical and mental abuse; I've been thrown around, hit, told that I'm a "stupid bitch" or "stupid mother fucker"....oh and can't forget "cum dumpster"....at the time, I thought I deserved it, i blamed myself over and over again. People around me encouraged me to leave the person, but I didn't. I prayed that things would get better because I was at fault... ...and then one day I woke up. NO woman deserves what I went through. The pain, the sadness, never feeling good enough. The person who committed the actions was an "upstanding citizen" (you mean, felon, ex-con, cheater of the system); looks great on the outside and is straight from the devil on the inside. No one deserves the pain, suffering nor the financial loss that I went through, just to feel valued.
