Don't Learn Low Self Esteem!

Low Self Esteem

Low self-esteem is often cited as a major causelearned behavior. Often, low self-esteem will stem from insecurities related to the individuals physical appearance. They may often maintain the mentality that they are unworthy or undeserving. Therefore, an individual who is experiencing self doubt may resort to spousal abuse in order to help guarantee that they will not lose their partner. Often, these individuals are extremely paranoid and convince themselves that their partner is unfaithful. In many instances, abuse in families occurs because an individual fears loosing their partner to someone else. Therefore, the perpetrator will brutalize their partner in order to instill fear in them. They will try to convince their spouse that attempting to leave will be detrimental to their health and safety. In most cases, abuse in families includes severe isolation. An abuser will forbid their victim from communicating with their family and their friends. They may prohibit their partner from attending social events because they fear that the victim will be happier spending time with someone else, or because they are afraid that maintaining a support system will provide the victim with opportunities to leave. In many cases of spousal abuse, the perpetrator will prevent their victim from working or from receiving a further education, because the abuser is often paranoid that if their victim maintains financial independence, then they will have the ability to leave the abuser. Abuse in families is generally committed by an individual who has no confidence in their value or their abilities. It is an act of cowardice. No matter what the cause, abuse in families is unacceptable, and an individual who is suffering from domestic violence should seek help.
