No Silence: Part III

Been a little busy with work, but I finally got a chance to make a few more #nosilence images. I’ll be posting them on Instagram and Twitter later on, but you get to see them first here.

This first one describes the pressure I felt to not say anything about my abuse. My abuser even manipulated my family to get them to pressure me to stay and work on the marriage.  I didn’t know who to talk to.  I didn’t know any other male that had ever been abused. I thought it was just me.

Don't be trapped in silence

Like I’ve said before, not all scars are visible.  A broken bone will heal, relatively quickly, but a broken sense of self worth can take a very very long time to heal, if ever. I may look healthy on the outside, but inside I have scars.  Some will probably be with me for the rest of my life.

Can't Photoshop my scars away

A lot of people think abuse is physical, and since me are bigger and stronger than most women, they come to the incorrect conclusion that men can’t be abused. I assure you, you can most definitely be abused without being physically beaten.  Just because she didn’t hit me, doesn’t mean she didn’t abuse me.

Believe I'm broken
