Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.

— Winston Churchill

Bare Naked

I really do believe life is too short to be quiet, and I am adding my voice to the cry for humanity. The following three articles include first-person accounts related to violence within the family, including men’s violence against women. Join in and join the conversations. Together, let’s help shine a light where abuse lurks.

Bare Naked Part I: My Journey into Violence
One man’s journey from loving husband to violent abuser. He is astonishingly frank and refreshingly honest. It takes guts and we appreciate his willingness to share his story in the hope that someone somewhere may benefit.

Bare Naked Part II: My Road to Recovery
The successes and failures, an ultimate betrayal and a new life.

Bare Naked Part III: Enabling Violence from Generation to Generation
A glimpse into the generational cycle of abuse, and the consequences of silence.

If you are a survivor, an abuser or an enabler who wants to shout out about family violence, please add your voice. Leave a comment here with a link to your story, or e-mail tricia at shoutdaily dot com.

It takes everyone’s voice to make a difference.
