Thank you Lisa Wilkinson, for speaking up about domestic abuse.

I’ve always known Lisa Wilkinson has a level of maturity I relate to. Her views on 50 Shades of Grey, were 100% spot on.

Domestic violence/domestic abuse, are far greater issue than the threat of terrorism. So many people are being terrorised in their own homes, by family/partners/ex partners every day. And there is nowhere near the outrage required over this. Or the empathy needed.

Most people ignore the domestic abuse/child abuse issue…. but will be outraged over animal cruelty, or the lessor threat of terrorism (lessor compared to deaths caused by DV).

It is quite bizarre, how a possible terrorism act in Australia where two people died, leads to worldwide attention and a city square full of 100’s of 1000’s of flowers, but a mother, child are killed in domestic abuse and the reaction is very different. Most don’t care.

The lives and terrible deaths of women and children being killed in domestic abuse, are no less worthy of outrage and empathy, than those killed in a café, by a psychopath/suspected terrorist. In fact, these victims of DV, are being killed and terrorised by people they know, people who are supposed to love them. That’s worse.

Yet society, the pathetic legal system, the parole boards etc shows a constant lack of regard for people terrorised and killed by family/partners, and continually shows it does not consider them worthy of caring/protecting. Which is so wrong. And in fact, often the victims are blamed and shamed, and excuses made for the people who killed them, terrorised them. Again, so very wrong.

So, for those making a huge and needed, mature, compassionate effort to stand up for and speak out for victims of domestic violence/domestic abuse, child abuse, I am so thankful.

To Lisa Wilkinson, I am very thankful. I am thankful she is using her TV platform for good, to speak up for people who desperately need support and compassion.

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle.
