Lisa Kroulik is a freelance writer, writes on such a personal level it is heart wrenching and enlightening. It is apparent that domestic violence has lasting scars and can be generational but I have never read such a personal account. Lisa does not stop with the personal account she further explains how to begin a recovery. Keep in mind that a recovery is not over night but a process.
The following is one of the excerpts:
“Adults who witnessed violence between their parents when they were children often carry emotional scars that last a lifetime. The trauma to their developing brains can be so great that some psychologists have compared it to what soldiers experience in war. Like soldiers, children from violent homes are hyper-alert and expect to see danger at every turn. Since they don't possess the skills to process what they have witnessed, these children often suppress the memories well into adulthood. It often takes employment and relationship problems, a mental health diagnosis, addictions, and other serious life issues for them to make the connection between the events of their painful upbringing to what they are experiencing in the present.”
