We hear the media and other sources when they announced the shocking stories of women being beaten and a lot of times murdered in the hands of their spouses. Physical abuse has been the headlines on the media through decades especially when it must be with a public figure. It is a devastating, horrendous act which doesn’t discriminate race, culture, gender, and age. However, the definition that has been projected through years on domestic violence has not been completed. Domestic violence has different sides of abuse: the one which leaves bruise on the exterior of the body and the other one is the silent and unknown. This one leaves painful scars on the inside; the pain can be seen in the faces of this populous. This side is the one where society invites it into their life or they are not aware of the existence of the other side. The Other Side of Domestic Violence was written with the purpose to understand there’s no difference from one and the other. Both are painful, destroy lives and leave scars. This book was inspired on the events that took two decades on the author’s life. The Other Side of Domestic Violence is about the different types of abuse that has been happening for decades and has not been taken in consideration. Sadly, when people are unaware, they are dragging their loved ones into this type of scenario for instance, their children. The author demonstrates how psychological, verbal, environmental, sexual, and financial abuses affect these people’s self-esteem, anguish, loneliness, and depression. All these feelings are the result of a manipulative and cruel minds. Nonetheless, Lydia’s story demonstrates that anyone can get out of these types of abuse and be healed from the scars of the other side of domestic violence. “The past can’t influence anybody’s future; however, it can become the motive to achieve greater opportunities to bless others in the future.” When Lydia Gonzalez understood the importance of this truth, her life changed, and she became a totally different person. The Other Side of Domestic Violence presents a life of manipulation, discovering the truth, coping with grief, and making the decision to move on to a new journey.
