Infinity House Magazine Interview – Part 3 of 3

“Thank you for sharing with us and our readers, you are incredible!”

I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity for my story to be told on another platform, via Infinity House Magazine.  Part of stepping out of the shadows to tell our personal story of Domestic Violence is the responsibility of sharing it with as many people as possible.  Even if some are unable to relate directly, it is important, in my opinion, for everyone to understand just how widespread an epidemic this really is.

It happens every day, on every continent, to 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men.  There is no discrimination on gender, race, religion or sexual preference.  Each case of abuse is different.  For some it’s physical, and for others it’s sexual.  There is also emotional, psychological and economic abuse.  Statistics say that only 70% of Domestic Violence cases are reported to law enforcement.  We will probably never know how accurate that number really is – unless we started speaking out.

We don’t need sympathy.  We need honesty.  If you are reading this and have been in an abusive relationship – most especially – if you have gotten out — Tell. Your. Story.  It can, and will, help others.

However, if you are still in an abusive relationship, you are the only one that knows whether or not telling someone will jeopardize your safety.  Use caution.  Whenever you are able to – forget about the shame and – Tell. Your. Story.

Looking to the Future After Domestic Violence

This week we have heard the story of … Battered Wife Seeking Better Life. 

Her true tale has been one of great sadness, of deep jealousy, of vast fear and of unexplainable physical and mental pain. It has been the account of real life domestic violence, that happens to millions everyday.

  1. So happy for you that you got the opportunity to write your story down in a magazine. You encourage me. You said in your story that that amazes you, but you do. Thank you for speaking out. You know that I am still in my relationship too. I feel a special bond with you, knowing that you understand me. I too, will reevaluate my position when the boys are of legal age. This gives me hope. Keep writing. Thank you for being my friend. Meghan
