Q: Can you provide information about the connection of domestic violence and self-esteem?
A: Domestic violence often has more than one point of origin. A lack of impulse control, anger issues, substance abuse and or a struggle for power in the relationship are some of the possible causes. These influences may occur in different combinations at different times. People with a healthy level of self esteem do not feel the need to abuse others to meet their needs.
The bottom line is that domestic abuse should never be allowed to continue because abusers typically escalate the violence to keep control. Getting away from an abusive relationship is not easy, but living with abuse is never acceptable. There are agencies, programs, family and friends who are able to help.
Domestic violence is not limited to physical violence and the abuse may be subtle in the beginning. Victims have to remember they are not to blame for the abusive behaviors of others but are responsible for taking control of their life and behaviors.
