If you have been a victim of domestic abuse of any kind, I hope today is the last day you let yourself suffer it. Braving up and making a stand by saying, ‘No more’ will probably take every ounce of energy you have in you, but once you start the ball rolling you will probably be surprised by how much assistance there is to help you.
If you are in any danger whatsoever, make your first port of call the police. There are specially trained departments and officers who will make the explanation process far gentler than you imagine it to be.
If you have suffered from harassment, intimidation or threats of domestic violence, they may guide you towards a Non-Molestation Order which will protect you. It is a criminal offence to break it and your ex could face up to five years in prison if they decide to do so.
Abuse is unacceptable in any form. You do not have to suffer it any longer. Make today the day you say, ‘No more’.
