While you are going through your domestic abuse, it is more than about you. It is about also about those that love you, your children, your family and friends. They are going through the abuse as well. If you think you are hiding your abuse from them, then you're being naive.
They see through your lies as you try to protect your abuser, they don't believe when you make excuses for the bruises, sadness, depression, and secretivity. They can see right through it all. They want the best for you, and they want you to flee your abuser.
When they witness you go through your abuse, they are hurt, and feel that they too are being abused. They feel the pain and want you out. When it comes to children, you are teaching them that abuse is a acceptable manner in which to have a relationship.
You teach them that abuse is something that is just part of life. Then when they grow up, they will be more prone to either be abused or abuse in their relationships when they become adults. Remember they learn by example, be careful of what you are teaching.
God is all knowing and there is absolutely nothing that you do that God does not see. Know that God is not the only one that sees what is going on in your life. What you do in your life has a direct impact on those around you.
