One of the scariest things about domestic violence is that it can happen in the least likely of situations. In other words, you never know who around you could be involved in a domestic violence situation. Those who commit acts of domestic violence can come from all economic backgrounds, be members of any faith, and hold any ethnic background. Obviously there are some factors that can increase the likely hood, such as mental illness or having been abused as a child, but there is no clear cut, determining factor that will make someone do this. This is why it is so important to understand the signs of domestic abuse, so that we can help those who are involved in domestic abuse situations.
Physical abuse is easy enought to tell. When someone hits you know it. Emotional abuse can be harder to spot. Here are some examples:
- Telling you that you can never do anything right;
- Showing jealousy of your friends and time spent away;
- Keeping you or discouraging you from seeing friends or family members;
- Embarrassing or shaming you with put-downs;
- Controlling every penny spent in the household;
- Taking your money or refusing to give you money for expenses;
- Controlling who you see, where you go, or what you do;
- Preventing you from making your own decisions;
- Intimidating you with guns, knives or other weapons; and
- Forcing or pressuring you to have sex when you don’t want to or do things sexually you’re not comfortable with.
