Many victims or survivors of domestic violence ask:
What did I do wrong?
Why is my marriage not working?
I'm afraid for my children.
Why does God not answer my prayers?
I have no one who understands or who will help me.
If I am more patient and understanding, things might work out. But I have done all that and nothing changes. May I just need to try harder.
If you have had these thoughts, you are not alone.
