October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic Violence Care/Advocacy Ministry
Common Myths About Domestic Violence
Myth #1: Domestic violence victims are helpless, passive and fragile; have little or no
education, no job skills and numerous children; and are usually people of color.

Fact: Domestic violence is equal opportunity; it crosses all socioeconomic, ethnic, racial,
educational, age and religious lines.

Myth #2: If a victim does not leave the abuser, she/he must enjoy the abuse.

Fact: There are many reasons why victims stay, none of which has anything to do with any
enjoyment or gratification from being abused. This myth, like many others, is a form of
victim blaming, taking responsibility from the abuser and placing it on the victim.

Myth #3: Domestic violence victims must have done something to cause the abuse.

Fact: This is another form of victim blaming. There is nothing a victim can do to cause or
prevent the abuser from being violent. The abuser CHOOSES to be abusive and violent.

Myth #4: Abusers have an anger management problem.

Fact: Most abusers do not have a problem controlling their anger. For example, they would
not become abusive with their supervisors and co-workers if they were angry at work.
Abusers are violent because they want to have power and control over their victims.

Myth #5: Drugs and alcohol cause the abusive behavior.

Fact: An abuser’s substance use or abuse is often used as an excuse for the behavior but it is
never the cause. Drugs and alcohol may make the abuse occur more frequently or make it
more severe, but research shows that even when abusers are sober the abuse continues. The
abuser will find something or someone else to blame for the behavior.

If you or someone you know is being abused or abusing others help is available.

THE STARFISH

back into the sea.
Finally, catching up with the youth,
he asked him why he was doing this. The
answer was that the stranded starfish would
die if left until the morning sun.
“But the beach goes on for miles
and there are millions of starfish,”
countered the old man. “How can your
efforts make any difference?”

Calendar 8th Annual Prayer Vigil

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its
own way it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the


counsel of the wicked or stand in the way
of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his
delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
