“Is This What Love Looks Like?” – Tonto Dikeh


With the many stories of women who have been brutally abused by their partners we hear everyday, it is very obvious there is a need for many women to be educated on how to protect themselves from these awful experiences.

Many women need to know how to prevent going into relationships with an abuser, and for women who are already in an abusive relationship, they need to know how to safely leave.

Following the report of a woman who was brutally beaten and left with a broken ankle by her husband on christmas eve,  Tonto Dikeh has an advice for women in abusive relationships.

She wrote,

Is this what Love looks like??

Women we need to step out of the shame box and speak Up for Ourselves, For our Children, For our Self-respect.. This is what a second chance at a violent husband looks like??? This is what Close to death looks like!!!
Men who do this are alAnimals no matter how innocent they look or Act..
Even A dog wldnt Bite it’s owner why then will a human being who begged to marry you do this to you treat you this way???
I keep asking violent men if your Mother was beaten Up by her husband or boyfriend what would you do??? Would you say she is a woman and deserves it because you are an abuser???
Marriage is suppose to be beautiful,honorable and a weapon against the enemy and life challenges but if we don’t get it right it will bring nothing but SHAME..Wimen pls be careful and prayerful before running into a mans home,Don’t stay or marry just because want to answer Mrs..

Women we need to start empowering ourselves,holding good jobs and having comfortable bank accounts..Be financially independent,Be financially Ready and secure..Half the time we stay in violent relationships Becos we are financially incapable…women Learn self defense. Women SpeakUp
