Do you know what Domestic Violence is? In my opinion it is the worst of the worst types of abuse.
Domestic Violence is when a family member abuses another family member. So like your mom may abuse you or one of siblings, or you father might abuse her. And this is any type of abuse verbal, physical, sexual,etc. And it affects a lot of people in the process. Children can catch on to this attitude and hurt a sibling, friend, or when they get older and hurt their spouse. And plus when you abuse that family member, just remember you are hurting someone that you are sharing routes, genes, and they are the people that love you and should love spending time time with you.
Domestic Violence is a serious problem and let me educate you on it. There is a book about a whole bunch of things that is well, life changing. This is book is called,”Forged by Fire”.
In the book there are multiple occasions of abuse. Two are Domestic Violence. First it is when the main character Gerald gets abused by his mother Monique. And then later in the book the Monique brings in a very abusive father figure for Gerald.
His name is Jordan Sparks. Jordan abuses Gerald but he is not Gerald’s father. But he does abuse Monique and Monique is his wife. Then in the book Monique finally says after being hit by Jordan, “No, I didn’t like that at all, I don’t think I’m gonna let him hit me anymore. Did he hit you too, Gerald? That’s not good, not very good. No, we’re not gonna let him do this anymore.” Monique has been obvious this whole time and hasn’t said anything so that is a great improvement. But it still hasn’t help that Jordan is still abusing Monique.
In the book,” Forged by Fire” Domestic Violence happens but they find a way through it all. In the book,”Forged by Fire”, did you ever think that Monique might not even realize that she is being abused by Jordan? And some people like Monique don’t even realize that they are being abused by a loved one. Like Help Guide.org says,”When people think of domestic abuse, they often focus on domestic violence. But domestic abuse occurs whenever one person in an intimate relationship or marriage tries to dominate and control the other person.
” Monique and other victims of Domestic Violence must consider that they are a victim and treat this with caution because your partner has been abusing you. When you are a victim of Domestic Violence you always must keep an open mind of the posibilites like if your loved one is abusing you. In the book,”Forged by Fire”, have you ever thought that many Monique knew she was being abused but just couldn’t leave her abusive relationship? Maybe she worried for mutiple reasons, like she was worried for Angel and Gerald’s safety, her safety, or maybe for finacial reasons. Like what join love one.org says,”Women are 70 times more likely to be killed in the weeks after leaving their abusive partner than at any other time during the relationship.
” Maybe Monique might be worried Jordan will hurt her or worse. Also like join love one.org says,”People in abusive relationships often feel embarrassed to admit that their partner is abusive for fear of being judged, blamed, marginalized, pitied or looked down on.” Like Kiara always thought Monique had everything together because of her shoes, her nails, and clothes always matched. She might have thought her kids wouldn’t think she was strong if she left Jordan. Monique is stong and maybe she could have had the strength to leave Jordan if she knew Angel and Gerald supported her. Domestic Violence is an extremly serious topic.
And it is something that no one should every have to deal with. And in the book “Forged by Fire” two of the characters had to deal with abuse from a family member. Monique and Gerald. Gerald was abused by Monique and Monique was abused by her husband Jordan. You know when a loved one hurts you, you will feel upset because those are the people who are really supposed to love you.
Domestic Violece is a hard thing to deal with but many like, Gerald and Monique can persevere through it all.
