One Imgur user’s post has recently gone viral for its horrifying portrayal of what an abusive relationship can look like.
KrissyKross decided to share the images because it is the third anniversary of her ex-husband’s sentencing.
KrissyKross told the Huffington Post the following :
“It was weighing heavy on my mind,” she said. “I never got therapy afterwards due to lack of money, so I never really learned how to deal with what had happened. I didn’t ever bring it up with anyone and never really talked about it with my family after the fact.”
The below messages are a prime and very real example of the many forms in which intimate partner violence and abuse can manifest. According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, habits such as insulting partners, showing extreme jealousy, controlling a partner’s social life, damaging a partner’s property and hurting their pets are all indicative of intimate partner abuse and violence ― and KrissyKross’s ex-husband exhibited much of this abusive behavior.
Over the course of their marriage, KrissyKross said that he physically, sexually and emotionally abused her.
KrissyKross eventually left her (ex-husband) after he hurt her dog and cat. She know lives alone and lives a life free from abuse.
