Restraining Order

Restraining Order

More women need to speak up against Domestic Violence

Today begins another saga, when finally my mind is at ease, the dirt of my past rears its ugly head. I am receiving annoying phone calls from my ex; the nerve of him to start things up again; this charges my reaction to the cycle of further domestic endurance. The preparation of discovering what obstacles are coming my way is impressive; I am confident that I will get my peace and swag back, preferring not to discuss all the consistencies of this affair, but will say that I won custody of our children, and we divorced; I thought the pain was over. My kids are the best gifts; mom and dad issues have nothing to do with our love for them. We don’t see each other, and things are great; I have no bitterness or anger.

The dysfunction began as a result of his domineering drug dependance.
My knowledge came when he took his fist to both my eyes,  I got black eyes from the dysfunction, thus the first restraining order. I remember the court date, the lawyer pleaded with me to testify in the case but instead I stayed home. A mistake I find disheartening, especially now: as I look at the news flash, it reads- a brave soul standing up for her rights and taking down jerks; my contempt right now is at an all-time high.

Consequently, I have taken charge of my life; my bravery most likely will help others. I share stories like this to uplift and above all shed light, to see that you are not alone, it’s effortless to pretend that nothing has happened. Yes, sharing bad moments of the past will begin a cycle of change, a significant difference should shift in a right direction that will prepare more women and maybe even men to speak up, you are not alone, do not keep silent.

Love shouldn’t hurt or put bruises on your body

  1. I am also a domestic violence survivor, and my abuser recently re-entered my life as well. I was able to get my restraining order renewed for a year but…I’m worried it won’t be again after that.

    1. Please log on to National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. It will be fine, also get involved with a support group in your area. You are already doing good by talking about it.

  2. Girl, this is so not fair!!! Nobody owns the others so they can do whatever they want with their life, body, spirit.
    I know it is hard, but don’t give up!!! Know that God is always by your side, and no matter what, you are not alone!!!
    Keep your head up, rise, and shine!
