The Excuses Of Not Talking About Abuse…..Because PART ONE

If we aren’t alone…..if staggering statistics clearly show that abuse is a worldwide problem that does not discriminate……affecting people of all races, gender, financial status, religion, sexual orientation, background, etc……then why don’t we talk about it more. Well…..Because

  • Because it’s difficult
  • Because of the repercussions
  • Because of what other people will think of us
  • Because I don’t want to hurt anybody
  • Because no-one will believe me
  • Because there is nothing they can do about it
  • Because I’m an adult now…..so i have moved on
  • Because I’m trying to forget it happened
  • Because it’s not a big deal…..I got over it
  • Because it happened a long time ago
  • Because the family would be torn apart
  • Because they will think I am crazy
  • Because I don’t want to be a burden
  • Because I will called a liar and labelled mentally ill
  • Because I feel embarrassed
  • Because I feel ashamed
  • Because it would upset my family, my children
  • Because it’s no big deal….nothing much happened anyway
  • Because nobody will do anything about it now
  • Because the abuser won’t be brought to justice….so what is the point
  • Because the facts in my head are a bit fuzzy so I don’t want to say anything that isn’t 100% true
  • Because everyone else seems to have it all together and i don’t want to stand out as the weak one
  • Because I don’t want to look like an attention seeker
  • Because I don’t want to draw attention to myself
  • Because I don’t like being vulnerable to me vulnerable means victim
  • Because I might get so low that I won’t be able to pull myself out of the black pit of depression

Let’s work on getting past the excuses and getting help. Let’s raise awareness to create change. Let’s end the silence on abuse.

    Reblogged this on JUSTICE FOR RAYMOND and commented:
    Domestic abuse – I recently found a pamphlet titled “Going Home Shouldn’t Hurt”. So true. Men, women, children and adults suffer from uncontrolled rage of a partner, spouse or even an adult child. Our children are becoming a huge population of an abusive parent.
