When it comes to domestic violence, many people attempt to judge individuals who are caught up in an abusive relationship. There are women who say that they would simply leave a man who beat them, and there are men who suggest that they would never allow a woman to hit them. It’s easy to sit off to the sideline and state what you would or wouldn’t do in a situation in which you aren’t involved. There are a number of women, for example, who thought that they would never see themselves in an abusive situation only to find that they are caught up in one, after all.
In this video, we have an opportunity to witness the transformation of what a woman goes through in an abusive relationship. The video starts off with the woman smiling as she receives flowers. She then receives an engagement ring, and she continues to smile joyfully. Later, however, her face begins to show signs of abuse, her smiles become less, and she works hard to cover her facial bruises with makeup. The video is no longer than a couple of minutes, and there’s no talking—only music, however, you will definitely get the point.
Domestic violence is not something that only women experience. There are men who receive verbal abuse, physical abuse, and mental abuse from their spouses. The biggest problem with men who are abused is that they rarely report the abuse due to fear that they will be judged by other men. Being abused is never the fault of the person being battered. It is generally a form of control by the abuser and it is something that a person should avoid at the first sign of trouble.
There are those who feel that their abuser will someday stop hurting them if, and when, things change in the lives of the abuser. Unfortunately, a person’s need to control has nothing to do with outside circumstances. The only way that an abuser will stop their torment upon their mate is if they themselves deal with what it is that is causing them to lose their own cool. Until then, if a person is being abused, they should do everything that they can to escape the situation…before it gets worse.
