The Cycle of Abuse

Domestic violence is very serious it can affect men, women and children.  Most cases is men hitting, punching, threatening and emotionally abuses women.  But men can get abused too.  It also affects children growing seeing and hearing their parents fight.

It kills your spirit, causes depression and low self-esteem.

The Cycle of Abuse goes in a circle like this:  Abuse he feel guilty, make excuses then the fantasy you get the flower, candy, sweet takes and making love then the setup, the abuse come again.

Verbal, physical and emotional abuse done to your spouse or partner to dominate and control them.
