Domestic Abuse: Does Not Have To Include Violence
Just because your partner not does not hit you, does not lessen the significance of the emotional and psychological damage that Narcissistic abuse inflicts on you and your life. Any way a narcissist attempts to control you and your life, is in fact ABUSE.
I am writing this unpleasant newsletter to ensure you understand that physical violence is only one form of domestic abuse. You and I know how clever Narcissists are. They don’t need to hit you, as their invisible weapon that cuts sharper than any knife can, are the words they decimate you with each and every day. Their words, an invisible weapon, inflicting injuries as they destroy your sense of self, your confidence and eventually your life, as they try to control you in any way they can. Over time, you begin to believe their words, where eventually you feel worthy of nothing.
If you are experiencing this, you are in an Abusive Relationship
In Australia we have some horrific statistics when it comes to Domestic Violence. The statistics state in the past 12 months, one woman is killed each week by a partner or former partner. 1 in 4 children in this country are exposed to domestic violence. These statistics are NOT OK!
This week a Father murdered his innocent, beautiful children before committing suicide.
To inflict as much pain and horror in the most acute act of revenge to his ex-wife. Most decent Australians, are thinking – ‘When will this ever end?’
I could continue with more horrific statistics, but it would simply make both you and I sadder and angrier. Angry that our politicians are simply not doing enough, in either funding and most importantly creating more safe facilities giving women the opportunity to flee their abusive relationships.
