With the recent news of all the deaths by domestic violence in Australia this year (17 already), it certainly has hit a spot of anxiety in my soul perhaps from my own experiences from violent relationships. Although I don't know if you would deem me a 'victim' per se of domestic violence- as after a while I gave back as good as I got.
But I should never have had to.
Then today the news of my friends uncle finally losing his appeal for killing his wife and child. It has been met with relief from my friends family and they can now start trying to pick up the scattered pieces of their life.
However, I can't even begin to try and explain the awful insecurity I feel all of a sudden. To have your 'soulmate' beat the hell out of you, or plan to destroy your life is just devastating to think about.
As a female I am told not to go out by myself in public in the evenings without male company, but yet it seems that the person I should be fearing the most, is the man I share my bed with. #domesticviolence #violenceagainstwomen #murder #violence
