I would say if you really love her/them then ask yourself: Do you want to change? Do you want to be respected by your family? You might think you are respected but like I found they were scared to say otherwise. I would also say, you might think you are a great couple.
He has changed in so many ways – mainly he is respectful towards me and I feel safe with him. I have noticed that he listens to me more, lets me explain how I’m feeling instead of just listening to his.
His eyes have begun to open and the defences that blocked communication are crumbling.
Pia - Burwood
He has stopped making everything all about him. He is a better husband because he is more aware of when he starts his abuse and stops very quickly.
He is calmer now; he still does blow off but will easily walk away and now knows how to manage himself.
Gayleen - Pakenham
He is much more considerate and I think he may have stopped ‘playing mind’ games with me.
Jodie - Essendon
Brian has learnt to acknowledge when his anger is building up, and is now able to control it. He has also learnt to see things from mine and others point of view.
The UTAS Student Living Team would like to thank you both for your recent Let’s Change the Story two-day professional development. This learning experience was invaluable in leading the Student Living Support Officers to develop self-awareness and understanding of attitudes that contribute to domestic violence.
