Are you a woman who is currently in a violent situation? This article will give you some advice and steps to take in order to get yourself the help that you so desperately need, so that you can live a safe and healthy life. The first thing that you will want to do is remove yourself from the current living situation. Many women find this to be one of the most difficult things to do. Most women are usually too emotionally attached to the person who is abusing them. But you can not expect someone else to help you out of your current situation, unless you first help yourself. This is especially important if you have children. If the person who is battering you becomes overly enraged they may one day decide to start abusing your children. There are far too many cases of this occurring around the world. Do you really want to be another statistic? If you are brave enough to admit that you have to remove yourself from your current situation then you are ready for the next step.
Getting help is not that difficult to do in today’s society. You just need to find out where to go and get there. Thanks to the internet many people now have this information right at their fingertips. Even if you do not have a computer in your home you can visit your local public library and use the internet there. What you will be looking for is abuse centers for women in your local area. These are shelters that battered women can go to in order to get the help they need. If you have not done so already you will need to also file a report against the person who is abusing you. The best time to do this is immediately after you have been abused. This is when you still have the evidence on your body. Unfortunately too many women wait until they have been beaten unconscious and someone else has to end up pressing charges on your behalf.
If you are married than the situation will be a lot harder for you to deal with. This is a good time for you to get help and support from families members and those that love and care for you. If you have not told them about what has been going on in your home, then you need to sit down and let them know. Don’t be surprised if the person decides to go back after you. This is how a lot of murders are committed around the world on a daily basis. Although the police will recommend that you get a restraining order, what type of protection does a piece of paper really give you? Sad to say most restraining orders only make the man who is trying to hurt you even more upset and angry, and most women do not even get the opportunity to enforce the restraining order. Abuse can also affect your health, since you are being constantly abused physically and mentally. Some women fall into a state of depression when this occurs, which can gradually cause a loss of appetite. So for the sake of your health and your children seek help now.
