Exhaustion

Why So Many Domestic Violence Survivors Don't Get Help -- Even When They Ask For It | HuffPost Communities


There is an old song whose words are "You got me going in circles-----round and round I go." This sample of words taken from this song lyric can describe many domestic/intimate partner victims in the seemingly never-ending cycle of abuse, crying for help and limited resources, Sometimes, victims stay in situations because they are mentally exhausted. As well as being a survivor of dv/ipv, I am also a black woman. Black people have defended racial prejudice for centuries and we get tired. Victims of dv/ipv have also been defending their story for decades and get weary. Where is our help? Who listens to us? Who will give us a couch to sleep on? Food for our families? See why this is exhausting work!
