“Wives, don’t be silent when your husbands become verbally or physically violent toward you. Part of the abuser’s power comes from secrecy!
Abusive behavior continues because it works! Fear of further harm and/or death intimidates victims into remaining silent and enduring it.
Many victims make excuses for their abusers because it is embarrassing to admit there is a problem. Still others remain silent because of economic hardships.
It takes real courage to speak up because the consequences are real and certain. However, remaining silent should never be an option.” –BB
