Safe Yourself from Domestic Violence!

Updated: Mar 29, 2022

Why Do People Abuse?


Domestic violence and abuse are motivated by a desire to gain, strengthen, and control over an intimate partner. Abusive individuals believe they have the right to control and limit their partners. They may enjoy the feeling that comes from wielding power. The abuser frequently believes that he or she and his or her needs should take priority, so they use abusive tactics to make their partners feel less valuable and deserving of respect in the relationship.





Tips to Save Yourself from Domestic Violence:


1. Recognize your abusive partner's red sigh.

Keep an eye out for signs and hints that the abuser is upset and may burst in anger or violence. Make a list of solid reasons why you should leave the house if you believe you are in danger.



2. Identify which organizations can assist you.

You are not alone! Your friends and family members might not the best people to help you. Anyway, they could still reduce the risk of abuse.


Call Talian Nur’s hotline (15999) is available 24/7 to report any case of domestic and social abuse. In addition to domestic violence, child abandonment and abuse cases can also be reported through this hotline.

or call the #MERCY Malaysia-MOH Covid-19 psychosocial support hotline at 03-2935 9935 (8 am-5 pm daily).



3) Recognize your feelings and seek professional assistance.

It is critical to allow yourself to heal. You'll need time to heal from the trauma. It's normal to be angry and sad. Surround yourself with people who care about you; find a therapist who can help you heal your wounds and rebuild your life.



Notes:

If you are the abuser, you should never expect your partner to be safe and alive at all times. You might kill your partner, which is something you never consider when you're beating them. Don't be ashamed; instead, bring your courage and seek help before it's too late.


If you are aware that someone is being abused, please contact the appropriate units immediately.
