October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. I think this is an important subject because so many, not just women, are in a abusive situation with little or no hope of escape. Although I don’t advocating violence with violence sometimes fighting back is the only way to gain the freedom from abuse that you so desperately crave. As the child of an abuser I have seen what it does to you, the fear, the anguish, the scars you can’t heal. Abuse isn’t just physical, it can be mental and those scars take a very long time, if ever, to heal.
Take a stand, if you or someone you know is in an abusive situation, get out! Not tomorrow, not later, they will NEVER change and you will only be trapped until one day you may be set free permanently. My mom finally left her abuser because she was afraid he’d kill her children, don’t let it come to that.
So my husband, SL and RL since he’s the same person is not an abuser, as a matter of fact he is one of the most amazingly supportive people I’ve ever met, so when it came to doing this post based on domestic violence it didn’t feel right using him so I dusted poor ole Thad off and brought him in to get an ass beating. So first we’ll cover what Thad is wearing and he can go clean up.

Honestly the hardest part of this post was finding the right pose to portray what I wanted to say and after and exhaustive hunt I found this amazing pose at Come Soon Poses.

Lamb is at Collabor88 this round with this awesome hair, it’s flowing tresses and cute bangs are perfection.
This skin actually started my thought process on doing an anti-domestic violence post. Glam Affair release this skin for Fifty Linden Friday for Catwa mesh heads and the bruises around the eye and mouth are so realistic.

You know when a plan falls into place and it’s perfect? Well that happened when Chemical Princess sent out the newest review copy. The broken nose tattoo is absolutely perfect and was just the final touch I needed to make this post realistic. Broken Nose is available at Bodyfy right now!
This adorable necklace is from Pulse and is available right now at The Crossroads. The necklace is pearls and chains with a super cute key attached to it. To me this signifies hope that things do get better. The necklace comes in 5 individual colors.
Mesange is at Premium Only Events Supernatural round with this amazing pack of eyes.
Eyes: Mesange – InnerSpace Eyes 14 – POE
These new shoes are a collaboration with Blueberry’s new jeans, Tali which I grabbed the wrong pair and could kick myself but it is what it is. *Laughs* The Monetti heels do go fantastically with the Melanie jeans however.
