Did you know?
Jealousy - is a complex emotion that encompasses many different types of feelings that can range from fear of abandonment to humiliation to rage. These feelings can occur in both men and women and can destroy relationships; these feeling can be life threatening in both domestic violence and sexual exploitation if acted upon. Jealously can invoke violent and uncontrolled behavior. It can be confused with love and caring.
Fear and Anxiety - while normal responses to dangerous situations, fear and anxiety can become a permanent emotional state without professional help. Memories of the trauma can trigger intense anxiety and immobilize the survivor. Children may express their fears by becoming hyperactive or aggressive, or may develop phobias and revert to infantile behavior.
Shame, Guilt and Blame – One is the catalyst for the other. Shame can trap victims of domestic violence and sexual exploitation and keep them there. Shame and guilt has a pervasive influence on the relationship one develops with self. Many victims feel shame because of their involvement in a certain lifestyle; when violence occurs, they experience guilt about “letting things get this far.” They blame them selves for the abuse they suffer. They minimize the abuse, blame and question themselves about the choices and mistakes they make. They carry this from relationship to relationship. Forgiving self is key the component to healing from shame, guilt and blame.
Grief and Depression - feelings of loss, sadness and hopelessness are signs of depression. Crying spells, social withdrawal and suicidal thoughts are common when grieving over the loss and disappointment of a disastrous relationship.
