Domestic Violence Thru The Eyes Of A Child

Growing up in a household of Domestic Violence is traumatic, lonely, heartbreaking and forever changes the person you are and who you become. I was also emotionally and physically abused by my mother and stepfather which added my train wreck of a life.

It took years of Therapy and medications to clearly see I was not to blame and even longer to grieve for the little girl who’s childhood was ripped away.

Watch the video, look for the nuances of violence or controlling behavior. At the end of the video the physical abuse becomes crystal clear. Thank God someone was there to help her get away.

If you’re in a Domestic relationship that is violent, have a plan for when the day come when you need to leave.

Tears started my day, who knows what triggered the thought of this post and song.

young sick looking me
I feel the pain but know I have to smile.

I witnessed my mother beat emotionally and physically everyday, it created chaos in my young mind. A tornado burned a hole in my heart. I couldn’t understand the feelings of pain when abused and watching abuse. Child abuse leaves a deep scar in my heart. During a conversation, a friend expressed fear over how the high conflict divorce was impacting the kids. A volcano erupted in me, I survived Domestic Violence and had no idea. I thank Army of Angels for being a friend. My eyes were opened during our conversation. The video is heartbreaking, beautiful and hopeful.
