Library Journal Self-Help Bestseller Winner of the 2023 National Indie Excellence Award in African American Nonfiction Silver Winner of the 2023 Nautilus Book Award A revealing look at why domestic violence victims stay with their abusers…and how they can ultimately leave. And survive. One Saturday morning, Gooden is woken up by her husband shoving her off the bed for no discernible reason. Despite her quick thinking and even quicker footsteps, her husband catches her, his sudden anger inexplicable. No words are exchanged. He begins to strangle her as he has done many times before. With unflinching vulnerability, Gooden outlines in painstaking detail what she had to do to walk away and how others can use her experiences to escape their own abuse, from skimming the grocery money, to squirreling away personal belongings, to navigating a domestic violence shelter. She offers strategies for overcoming the barriers survivors often face, such as money, housing, overcritical social circles, or, most powerfully: love. Uniquely compassionate when it comes to the heartbreak of still loving one’s abuser, Gooden shares how she transformed and extended this love outward, using her story to encourage others to choose themselves. The voice and fire behind #WhyIStayed, Bev Gooden is exceptionally positioned to explore the many reasons victims stay in abusive relationships, and how they can muster the resources and motivation to leave. Surviving is unlike any memoir of survivorship, given its nuance, compassion, and candor. Above all, it is an exquisitely powerful testament to Gooden’s healing, survivorship, and dedication to helping others do the same.

Using expert advice complemented by her story and the stories of dozens of other women who have survived and turned away from domestic violence, Hunter teaches women to identify the lies they've accepted, understand what healthy thinking sounds like, stop taking the blame for their partner's behavior, identify power and control plays, and stick up for their own needs and plans for their safety.With each self-defeating message addressed in But He'll Change,Hunter offers counter messages designed to help women build strength and hope. Readers will develop the tools to operate not as victims, but as survivors, understanding the power that they hold to change their lives.

You become afraid for your life but youre having a hard time of letting go, of deciding if you should leave. If you stay you may become a statistic, and/or a victim. I chose to stay because we had longevity and years of memories, which was probably not a good reason. I didnt think of his name calling, arguing, etc. as abuse and thats how we women trick ourselves. We dont equate the mental/emotional abuse in the same category as the physical abuse. Face it ladies, lets keep it real-we all get Im not letting another woman have what it took syndrome. KISSD is a book written with separation/divorce, African American women and the abuse we suffer in mind, based on my personal experience. This is a straight to the point book about surviving the emotional and physical issues of separation and/or divorce. Kept in Silence Surviving Divorce because most women dont know what they are entitled to and in the case of abuse they dont report it for various reasons. African American women make up the biggest statistics; maybe thats why its called an unreported epidemic.
