Great to have this platform of free but resourceful expression. How should men stop violence? Most men continue to distort biblical texts for personal interests. They think a woman to be submissive means accepting violence. This post has been modified to remove any personal information per our community guidelines.

November 10, at 5: Men and women whom abuse, do not stop because of budget constraints, they continue. The hardest thing I have ever done is leave an abuser. I was in denial for many many years. First it was his drinking, we had two very young children, then he would never come home at night, and then he would come home drunk. He had and now has been diagnosed with OCD. Thank you for allowing me to write. I have not told many people this because in my family where my mother was a raging alcoholic, and now is dying of a disease, we did not speak, feel or talk, it is very hard, and I have suffered greatly from it.
My sisters have abandoned me, and I think the reason is because I am the youngest. I was 52 and my sister stated there was no more room in the house for me and my husband for Christmas, or Holidays, or Birthdays, and then my own entitlement son abandoned me, not allowing his wife, or our first Grandchild daughter , we have not been married since he was 3.
Really, this is abandonment, from two adults whom did not see each other from age 3 on. November 10, at 4: There is nothing that you could ever do to deserve abuse from anyone. Navigating abuse is a very confusing, draining, and often traumatic experience and the healing process can be a very frustrating thing. If you would like to talk to an advocate about your situation and what you have gone through, we are always here to chat, text, or talk.
Domestic abuse is something that crosses not only all gender identity lines, but it also crosses social economic, religious, race, and sexuality lines. No only do men need to support ending domestic abuse, all individuals need help bring about an end to domestic abuse. There are amazing organizations working on both the national and local level to help spread awareness.
If you are wanting to get involved in your community with ending domestic abuse, we are always here to connect you with local organizations.
