She Knew Every Day She Could Count on Being Yelled At By Him- abstract watercolor 5×7

$_12 (30)[update] this piece was purchased and will be part of a silent auction to raise awareness for domestic violence.

I wish I would have know the intention – I would have totally donated it!

I love Reddit. It’s one my fave places on the Internet. I wind up reading Reddit/Relationships – I know a lot of trolling goes on there but some legit sharing too. I read one very detailed and long post from a woman telling about her life with a verbally abusive man. The yelling and tantrums, just wow.

People were commenting to her, why don’t you just leave? She wasn’t in a position to do that financially. She had no job, no support systems, he’d driven off all her friends long ago, no car,no savings of her own he didn’t have access to, and she had a young child to think about. She also feared him because he said he’d disappear with their child on the first visitation. She said he was so charming when wanted to be, he would indeed fool a judge into visitation.

The most shocking part of the entire post I read, was the number of other women in a similar situation. They didn’t have physical bruises but they were verbally abused frequently by the person that was supposed to love them.

He Called Her Names and Said it Was Her Fault He Did It

I am sad to say I know who this happened to and I’m furious.
No one should start their day crying their eyes out because of bullying behavior.
No one is in charge of anyone else’s feelings or actions unless you’re physically possessing their body at the time.
Any person that makes another responsible for their actions in a relationship, especially for hateful words spoken because the other person “caused” it – is a giant cop out spoken by a true coward and bully¬† and I have no respect for cowards or bullies.
People need to evolve.
