Corona Virus & Domestic Violence Awareness

I’m working on two new videos; How to get through the coming weeks and months (Subscribe to my main youtube channel here) & How to find justice after being in an abusive relationship. (Subscribe to my relationship youtube channel here)

In regards to the latter, I really feel for the people who may soon become trapped in the same house as their abuser.

For many it won’t be the virus they have to fear but the person who they live with. Abusers are already unstable at the best of times, let alone with the extra pressure that this climate could place upon them….

There are cases where some men are using the virus as a ‘weapon’ against their victims; They are telling their victims that they will catch the virus if they leave the home for example, thus keeping them ‘trapped’ inside the home.

I would say, to anyone who reads this, who is in abusive relationship, and who doesn’t live with their abuser – this up-coming isolation period could well be the break you need to make the break. Use it to your advantage and break free from the toxic relationship.

What constitutes domestic abuse and domestic violence?

  • Emotional abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Coercive control
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Harassment/Stalking
  • Online or digital abuse

From my personal experience, emotional abuse has a far reach even if you are not living with the abuser; don’t underestimate the damage it does.

If you are living with your abuser seek help right away. Find out all your choices & try to make a plan. I don’t have all the answers but please do reach out to the resources below today.
