Abuse is a horrible situation that many people should have to suffer through, but it happens. If you were abused when you were a child, the abuse cycle will more than likely keep going even into your adulthood. You’re able to learn your behaviors and how to react during certain situations that could begin developing when you enter a new relationship. Your first thought is, don’t trust that person. You’ve quickly developed the idea that you’ve got to keep yourself safe and void getting hurt. You probably find yourself being angry towards other people who you felt were supposed to love your and protect you from harm.
People need to do what they can to stop the domestic abuse cycle. This is where people should do research on abuse. Learning why people are abused and how the cycle continues will help deal with the pain. While it’s a long process, it’s something that many people should learn about.
Sometimes it helps talking to someone who has been through what you have.
When you’re a kid, you’re too young to understand what’s going on and how you can defend yourself. You were just a child then. As an adult it’s important to learn how to cope with the situation. Talking about the past is going to be hard and it’s something that you can’t always prepare for. How does one really prepare for talking about something as horrible as abuse? The abuse is something that you should and really need to talk about. Burring it deep and just ignoring it will only make things worse down the road. Admitting to how it’s affected your life and wanting to move on is important in the healing process.
Don’t just say you want things to change, make the change happen. This is easier said than done, but taking action is the only real way to move on. Don’t let your anger get the best of you and never ever give up. You’re not perfect and being abused did some damage, but it doesn’t have to affect your life anymore.
