Hidden Hurt Domestic Abuse Information

Change Your Approach

by Anon

Consider your reactions to the abuse that have hindered your healing. Once you have identified your mistakes, think of what you should have done (most likely the opposite) and put what you can into action rather than feeling regretful.

For example:

I found that the duration of my abuse was prolonged due to my denial and silence. I began telling people. I went online and asked people to help me define it as a healthy or unhealthy situation. After I had identified it as unhealthy I was more confident to speak to a few close friends who helped me.

Another example is how I switched out hiding in my room when I had suicidal thoughts for sitting with family or going for a run.
