As victims of abuse, we have a keen sense of what is right and wrong for us. We have been through hell and we feel lost. However, it can be something that we struggle with when it comes to staying safe.
Here are some safety tips I have learned myself:
- Block your abuser on ALL social media, facebook, twitter, linkedin, Instagram and snap chat. Also, any new platforms that you may come up.
- Change your mobile phone number; if they can’t call you they can’t reach you
- Any extra behavior that seems suspicious keep a record. Don’t feel guilty, or ashamed about going to the police. They take any form of domestic situations seriously. Even the slightest bit of concern get something on the report.
- If you are concerned about where you live to see what you can do to move
The key thing is to keep surviving 🙂 I know it is hard to do but it is the only way that we can make a bad thing good again.
I hope this helps. I am trying to get the money together to be able to move. I hope this helps.
Recently I have realized that I have been a victim of abuse for many years. This was not physical, he did not hit me, what he did was worse. He tried to make me love him even when I was happy with someone else. He would make me feel that no matter what happened that he was the only one for me and yet whenever we got together he would break up with me, again and again, and again. He would not only just make me love him but he would find new ways to torture me…
But, I have finally found my footing and have managed to block him everywhere, I have stopped him from being able to find out anything about me and cut ties with anyone I don’t trust. I have filed a report with the police so if my ex tries to get back into my life again he will be completely screwed. I just wish I didn’t live where I live anymore as he knows where I am. I am done being his victim.
I am a victim and I need to survive. If anyone else can help me survive I would be appreciative. If you are able to help me please see my GoFundMe page:https://www.gofundme.com/4t77nm-my-first-home
