Women On Domestic Abuse/Violence :: What The Truth Looks Like
While we have never properly met, I have been in the same distant circles from this Queen. We have appreciated each other’s creativity and power of individuality through social media and seeing this just now truly pains my heart.
First off, Dani? You have my love and support and emotional warmth.
Secondly, as a woman who was in an abusive relationship for 2 1/2 years in the time of 2006-2009, I respect your courage to inform others within such a vulnerable time. I myself kept quiet during the relationship and felt shame, embarrassment, and confusion because I didn’t know who to go to. You are strong, resilient, and smart (in my opinion) to post this because people need to know REALITY and not “embellished social media illusions” about individuals and what they are capable of.
As a human being and as a woman I am sending my love to you.
WE MUST ACT TO PUT A STOP TO DOMESTIC ABUSE/VIOLENCE!!!!
This is very hard for me at this moment in my life to express my heart/mind to the world, but I will say these last few months have been the worst months of my life. I was dating someone (J$tash) that abused me verbally ,emotionally and physically throughout the end duration of our relationship. Monday morning on September 15th 2014 my life was forever, changed. A person I thought and believed I could trust, whom I gave my love/time/energy to brutally punched me in my face repeatedly with his fists while I became slowly unconscious covered in blood in his brooklyn apartment bed. After he was done he told me to not tell anyone to not tell my friends, He also started to prepare legal action to protect himself in case I pressed charges against him. He cried and became unstable within his emotions and was apologetic towards his actions, but would continue to say i did this to myself.
He then boarded a flight to Japan a few hours after and has been sending me text messages claiming he will destroy me even more than he already did. He said he will ruin my life! I got brutally beaten for confronting him on infidelity which caused him to become violent in an instant.
Do not interpret this as a cry for help this is honestly a decision to speak up against domestic violence for those who cant due to the manipulative acts our abusers inflict on us to never speak up and for those who didn’t survive because of brutal domestic violence.
I will not allow myself to sit in the shadows of darkness and disrespect myself for not taking a stand.
I am speaking out for all my women!
Be brave this is what bravery looks like.
Abuser: Justin Joseph / J$tash
