7 comments on “When the Tides Rise: Identifying Behaviors Associated with Domestic Violence

    • We all know those who have little idea of how the signs of abuse are manifested to others. If we each use every avenue we have available, whether it’s our social media pages, talking to friends and family and encouraging them to share our story with others, or even public speaking, little by little people will talk. They will share and get the information out, but it is up to us to get the dialogue started. If we wait for anyone else to do it, it will not get done.

  2. I also did my best to keep up a “smiling face.” My close friends knew something was wrong though. They asked me. I told them. They worried for me. They offered me help, like 2 of them gave me a key to their house! Several talked to me about what was going on, and told me it was abuse before I was ready to admit it (it was emotional abuse, so I didn’t really realize what was happening for a long time.) Many prayed for and with me. They helped me stay sane. I love your list. Thanks for all the great info!

    • Ah my smiling face…. the mask I wore so well and sometimes even now pull out on occasion…. You are blessed to have several around you who not only noticed something was wrong and spoke up, they actually gave you a way out AND let you know what was happening to you was wrong. You cannot ever measure their value. So many of us do not have this, and to know at least a few do is an encouragement.

      I actually found the list on Neighbours, Friends, & Families online (Canadian) and had to share. It is such a good list that includes many signs I am sure many would not read as being indicative of abuse.

      Thank you for your comment and for sharing 🙂
