Learn About the Negative Effects of Domestic Violence

There are often secondary effects of domestic abuse that many people don’t realize are related. For example, some people have a hard time sleeping or sleep all the time. Some people deal with anxiety, depression, and/or suicidal ideation. Many people dealing with these issues end up with sexual problems, difficulty trusting others, and a fear of being intimate.

Physical symptoms can result too, including aches and pains, infections in the bladder and / or kidney, issues with digestion, headaches, and even central nervous system problems. Once you know these issues are related to your abuse you can begin to deal with them in the appropriate way.

The Cycle of Abuse

Many people who’ve been in an abusive situation blame themselves. They think they should have left earlier, they think they did something to deserve it, or they simply feel that caused the abuse. The truth is that there’s a cycle of abuse most abusers go through: first they’re mad and they threaten, then they abuse their victims, and finally they apologize and swear they’ll never do it again. But they do. And they generally continue to do so until something is done to break that cycle. In many cases, the only way to break that cycle in your relationship is to leave it.
