Battered Woman Syndrome: How To Recognize The Signs

        Love is the most powerful of emotions. It could either make you or break you. Women tend to be easily swept off their feet when a man proposes with promises of heaven and Earth and everything else in between. We are genetically predisposed to respond to men's luring. As women we have to learn to protect ourselves from being stuck in disastrous relationships and end up being beaten by the man we thought would love us for all eternity. Thank God not all men are bad and there are many out there who truly know how to take care of a woman.

What is Battered Woman Syndrome or Battered Wife Syndrome?     


-is a reference to any person who...


 because of constant and severe domestic violence usually involving physical abuse by a partner, may become depressed and/or unable to take any independent action that would allow him or her to escape the abuse...

The condition explains why abused people may not;

seek assistance from others,
 fight their abuser,
 or leave the abusive situation... 

Sufferers may have low self-esteem, and are often led to believe that the abuse is their fault. 

Such persons may refuse to press charges against their abuser, or refuse all offers of help, perhaps even becoming aggressive or abusive to others who attempt to offer assistance. 
THE THREE STAGE CYCLE FOUND IN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE


Tension Building Phase
-involves minor battering incidents

Acute Battering Incident
-the abusive partner releases tension via violence while blaming the victim for having caused the violence

Aftermath or Honeymoon Stage
-the husband apologizes and promises not to do the deed again and tries hard to be sweet and forgiven

~the sad thing is, the cycle is repeated when no external force successfully intervenes~

CAN WE DO SOMETHING TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING TO US AND THE ONES 
WE LOVE?

"We definitely can! Easier said than done yet yes we could keep our children protected from future abuse by  keeping the channels of communication in our own families open and constantly guiding our kids so they would grow up to be God-fearing, loving and caring people. Someday when the RIGHT TIME comes they will have the capacity to CHOOSE THE RIGHT PERSON TO SPEND THE REST OF THEIR LIVES WITH. The key is to always be there for them no matter what.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY SUFFERING FROM MARITAL ABUSE
while there are many institutions and organizations that could aid them 
they must first realize that they are in the situation and that
THEY NEED HELP!

Does Your Partner Beat You When You Argue?

...then Everything Will Fall Into Place
JUST KEEP THE FAITH.....

Many have won the same battle....Yes YOU CAN TOO...
