Shine a light on violence against women

Day 11 - surviving violence

Surviving domestic violence is not the same as leaving a violent relationship.


Surviving domestic violence is a process that won't happen in a day, or a week.

It is common for someone who has left a violent relationship to have low confidence, be unable to deal with the responsibilities of everyday chores, make decisions and feel frightened about what the future will hold.

In addition a woman may be wondering if they have made the right decision – feelings of guilt about 'giving up' on him, letting the children down.

Each day that passes you are a survivor, not longer a victim.
