Recognize That You are Not a Victim

It’s OK to feel disappointed about a domestic violence charge — it’s never a good feeling to know that you could be punished, especially for something that you may not have done. However, it’s essential to recognize that you are not a victim.

Things in life may not always go your way and you may have some uphill battles. There are usually periods throughout every person’s life where that happens whether someone has lost a job, lost a family member, or other tragedy. What’s important is to push through those sad or disappointed feelings and come out prosperous on the other side.

Talk With Family or Friends

Being able to verbalize your feelings — disappointment, anxiety, anger, or any other emotion — can be therapeutic. Make a point to talk to someone so you don’t build up whatever feeling you have.

Take Mental Baby Steps

It may feel like your world is coming to an end but it’s not. Look ahead to the future in small doses (such as something that will happen one day from now or one week from now) so that you have something to look forward to and gives you momentum to keep going.

Make Amends

You may feel better if you ask for forgiveness. This can be difficult to do if you have a restraining order against you so do not take any action that would violate that order. However, if you are allowed to talk to those you allegedly hurt, ask for their forgiveness. They do not have an obligation to forgive you but you may feel better knowing you put in the effort to ask for forgiveness.
