Domestic violence has been a prevalent issue in our society. It is suffered by both genders but in most cases, women are the victims.
Women take a lot from relationships, they get battered simply because they choose to stay in abusive or toxic relationships because of love, societal pressures and even finances.
To a large extent, it could be portrayed that it is the fault of the woman. I writing this article, believe it is the fault of the abused (woman), because it is what she accepted, what she felt was best for her. It goes a long way, it breeds deep and tells how much she doesn’t love herself. I believe self love comes with how you want to be treated as a human being. If a man laying hands on you seems normal to you, then it shows that you hate yourself and your worth as a person
Often times, the reason why a woman is domestically abused in relationships, is because she enjoys the privileges she gets from the man. This could be money or perceived love. For women in marriage, same reasons apply alongside her children and society’s perception towards failed marriages.
These women aren’t brave enough, they mostly do not love themselves enough and so accommodate all pain and agony. They become the sacrificial lamb.
As a woman, you should not blame a man for hitting you, you should blame yourself for accepting it. I entirely do not see it as the man’s fault when domestic violence is discussed. If someone could treat you badly and you give the person a handshake for doing that, how is it that person’s fault?
Take this as an example, I believe it is stated, that If a person is mentally and psychologically unstable, and hurts or kills someone, the person won’t be held responsible for charges due to his/her state of mind. Similarly, women should use this scenario to evaluate domestic violence (although there’s a little form of disparity in the example given as to domestic violence) .
I urge all ladies, that when faced with domestic violence, should be able to apply their highest sense of self love and take off! Love yourself enough not to be the sacrificial lamb.
