With all the Domestic Abuse we see through the Media on a daily basis, it is a far bigger problem that happens to many of all walks of life.
The only reason we hear of this Domestic Abuse from the Media, is the fact it is happening from some high profile sports athletes, when in reality it happens to many Humans everyday of their lives, most of the time it doesn’t start out as physical, it starts as mental abuse with words and degrading someones mind into thinking they are worthless and less than others around them, when our self esteem is broken, is when the physical side of the abuse starts and the victim of the abuse see’s no way out of it.
Domestic Abuse is not just a problem within the sports world, it is a problem within our Society as some feed on the control of another Human, so these Individuals can think they have the power of control, the biggest reason a person who is a victim of the abuse doesn’t communicate to anybody, is the fact that they are afraid to admit to their weakness and the fact that their self esteem is so low, that they have no confidence in themselves to make their lives better.
The person who is doing the abusing, in most cases shows no true empathy or remorse, to their victims, which leads to the abuse spinning further out of control and a lot of times becoming very violent towards the victim, the Abuser only sees it as they themselves having all the control and the Abused sees themselves as maybe it is suppose to be like this, then becomes trapped in a world full of pain.
No matter how you look at Domestic Abuse, it is a big problem throughout Society and not just within the sports community and the players who play the sport, we as a Society need to take this more seriously, show more empathy and remorse of each other, so we can end all the abuse whether it’s domestic or any kind of abuse, abuse of any kind whether verbal through words, or physical in nature should not be tolerated in any way shape or form, the ones that do the abuse shouldn’t be locked up to protect the rest of us, as this will only make them abuse more, what they need is good serious treatment, so they can get to the bottom of why they do it and just maybe through this and the rest of us showing more empathy and remorse of each other, we all can walk our paths along our journey’s of life in peace, as we become stronger and better to face the real hurdles that may cross our paths.
” Abuse happens everyday to anybody, not just in the high profile world of sports and the players of the sport”
” Abuse is a weakness that to some, they think it brings them power over everything around them”
” Abuse is not just physical in nature, it is also from the words we say to each other everyday”
