How can I ensure that my husband does not hit me?
It is not up to you to ensure that your husband does not hit you. Whatever you do, never blame yourself for the abuse. As much as your husband might say, your actions are not causing the abuse. He is causing the abuse. You are not choosing to take the abuse, he is choosing to cause the abuse. The abuse is NEVER a victim’s fault – only the abuser is responsible and must be held accountable for the abuse he is causing on the wife and children.
The abuse is not your baggage – it is his! The only thing you can do is keep yourself safe at all times – before, during and after the abuse. This is called safety planning and can be individualized to meet your needs. If you are in an abusive relationship and need help with safety planning or education and tools, feel free to reach out. Your privacy will be guaranteed at all times.
