When will the abuse end?

There are only three ways that I am aware domestic violence can end. They are:

 1)  The victim separates him/herself from the abuser.

2)  The abuser is rehabilitated and changes his/her ways.

3)  The victim dies.

 I know, it’s brutal, but it’s true. In my personal opinion, if the abuser is willing to seek counseling and rehabilitation, it’s still a good idea for the victim to separate him/herself from their abuser during that time. Wisdom is a great ally, especially in such a situation as this.

 So, how long does domestic violence last? As long as it can, and for as long as it is allowed to last. It ends when someone leaves, whether if temporarily, or permanently, and hopefully not in a body bag.

  1. 1 in 4 women will at some time during their life become a victim of domestic violence. That could be your mother, sister, wife or daughter – or grandmother. Consider 4 generations of females in your family. Now, which one do you think is the victim? OR, is it YOU?

  2. It has been an ongoing practice of mine to give out Avon “Speak Out” bracelets or key chains w/each book purchased at an author event. I wish the public were more aware of all Avon does in this fight against Domestic Violence, and hopefully, they will ramp up their PSAs, commercials, etc., to bring it further to the forefront. Thanks for sharing!
