Change is a hard process

“I am responsible for my own actions and I need to talk more and not resort to violence”

It was my first time attending the dialogue and it gave me a better understanding and awareness of violence, how we can stop and report it to assist victims.

I learned how to react and respond to certain situations with my partner. I chose to rather walk away than been abusive, at a later stage we can discuss the matter.

I used to be abusive toward my partner but the dialogue taught me alternatives. If these dialogues can be conducted on a weekly basis it will contribute positively to the community and they will also become more aware of Gender Based Violence.
