Domestic violence around the world

Domestic violence has constant factors, but there are severely abusive practices that are considered standard treatment, mainly towards women, which often creates an unfair disadvantage for victims.

The violent acts, the approach to resolving disputes, the support and aid available to victims based on gender equality, and religious and cultural views on the topic differ significantly around the world. This social issue affects us all since we all form part of the human race.

I must disclose that I had no idea of what I was doing when I decided to create this space; the only sure thing was my intention to share the solution I had uncovered.

As I researched and watched hundreds of documentaries about the topic and the victims, I found a couple of obstacles with the problem we face. The first one is that almost every site and organization refers to it as a woman’s issue, and from my experience, I know that if we are transparent, we will agree that we can play more than one role in these scenarios. I started as the victim, and shortly after, I also became an abuser. If this does not apply to you, please ignore the statement. However, I will be sincere about my involvement. The second part was that the degree and types of abuse women in other parts of the world are extreme and hazardous. Also, the lack of opportunities victims have to leave a toxic and dangerous environment diminishes or is non-existent in many countries around the world where women and children are indeed the majority of victims. We must address Domestic violence as a violation of our God-given right to be free and live in peace.

The United Nations website describes human rights as follows: "Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination."

Governments must be accountable for addressing domestic violence as a Human Rights issue rather than treating it as a private matter. Some family members and friends have suggested that I may not make a difference because this problem is beyond repair. I will not lie; they may be right. After all, who do I think I am to believe I can make a difference? To get back on track, I then go to my source of healing, which happens to be God. In a few months, I will release a book I wrote from a message I received from God. I know it sounds unbelievable, but it is true. In the message, God disclosed the solution to resolve this global pandemic. I am incredibly excited to begin this part of my journey. While the world governments and many organizations involved decide to introduce an approach that works, I will continue to obey God’s instruction to do my part. My faith in my Omnipotent God tells me He sent the answer and plans to heal us all, just as he did with me.

I feel compelled to speak up about an issue that hits close to home - Domestic Violence. Once I healed, I decided to share my experience and provide a new and unprecedented perspective on this widespread, ongoing problem.
