A Cry For Justice

Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

How much should I stand up to my abuser?

Informational post:– “How much should I stand up to him?” is Lundy Bancroft’s latest article on his blog.  It’s very good.


***IMPORTANT NOTE:  While we endorse Lundy’s writings about the dynamics of domestic abuse, we do not recommend anyone attend the ‘healing retreats’ Lundy Bancroft offers or become involved in his ‘Peak Living Network.’ See our post, ACFJ Does Not Recommend Lundy Bancroft’s Retreats or His New Peak Living Network for more about our concerns.

    Yes, abusers do want pay-back if their victim leaves, and big time, as my abuser has done. I hope that he is getting very tired of my persistence in unwrapping the truth for all to see after many decades of silence in protecting him while he abused me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

    I did inform of his violence against me in front of a judge and 2 lawyers recently. That act itself helped to restore my spirit and validated my experience.

    This is a good article. Thank God someone has their head on straight.

    I love this:

    The answer is that no one has any business telling you what to do, because there are so many factors involved in the decision in each specific situation.
