LEAVE AN ABUSER. Go with a survival plan & resources.

Amanda at Domestic Shelters advises.

“Creating a safety plan before leaving is an instrumental step toward staying safe. As Marylouise Kelley, director, Division of Family Violence Prevention and Service told DomesticShelters.org last September, “If you’re in the midst of a crisis it’s really hard to think straight. Putting a plan in place ahead of time, knowing where things are and having children understand what steps they can take to be safe—those are all things that are best done in advance.”

How to formulate a plan

“After he was served with an order of protection, he left her alone and she was able to begin a new and healthier life.”

Many women would disagree with expecting comfort in an order of protection since they can be breached easily and without repercussion.

One of my survival students obtained an RCMP generated Order and her abuser violated it daily with harassment in the form of driving by her house late at night, blowing the car horn and flashing lights in windows, stalking her at the market, picking their children up from school and a myriad of other frightening actions.

Once my student discovered martial arts and learning to not be afraid, her world changed. Her Mind Set allowed her to regain control of her life.

This happiness can be yours.

  1. Unsafe people can be …

    … defensive instead of open to feedback.
    … self-righteous instead of humble.
    … apologetic without changing their harmful behaviors.
    … the type to avoid working on any problems they have instead of dealing with them.
    … quick to blame others instead of taking responsibility for their decisions.
    … liars.
