For this situation, I'd appreciate any person's heart-felt perspective. (Truth-eyes)
This evening speaking on the cell (which I can't get reception inside the house)I heard two people arguing and a woman said, "You ever touch me again, and you won't walk out of here alive!!"
My husband locked the door. I said, "What are YOU doing/" She needs help. He said, "It's not a good idea..."
I'm like so just mind your own busines???"
I put on some sweats and and said, there's no harm shining a flash light in that direction." I had my PJ's on...he really wanted nothing to do with it, but went out anyway.
What could I have done better or what does anyone feel I should have done?
Police are a good 1/2 hr. away. But I didn't care, I just put on some clothes and tennis shoes so I could run if I had to.
Hi Elleise, I don't know if you remember me, but this is Eleise, your Higher-Self
...and I'm here to help.
I understand your concerns, as I've known you for some time, and commend your bravery. However, your husband has a point and hopefully you'll be able to receive what I have to share.
know what exactly is going on and do not know as well, what the person or person's involved are/were capable of and could have walked into something quite deadly.
Looking back, did you have a visual? Were you able to hear and
see where you were going or who the people were?
I'm going to gather you were not able, as you mention you had your "PJ's on", as well as "Sound travels" on the lake...
"Minding your own business...?" Well, As your Higher-Self, knowing you quite well, I don't feel you would have been able to live in "good conscious
", knowing you did nothing.
Domestic violence is (as you know) almost always a cyclical environment. As such, it is likely and almost bound to happen again.
I would take this experience and utilize it as you would a drill. Prepare, assuming you will likely hear a similar situation again.
Locate precisely where the police, for your area, are and if you feel comfortable, pay a visit and at the very least express what you heard. They're likely to tell you there's nothing they can do and the person's involved need to file a complaint.
However, just making the situation known, may alert them so if you do happen to be in the same position again. You can add their number to speed dial, locate in advance a spot you are able to get a cell-signal (out of view) from wherever you feel the voices were coming from and then make a call while preserving your safety.
You live in a different world and many simply do just feel the need to mind their own business. However, hopefully you will be able to utilze some of the information provided here to deal with and act to the best of your ability, one in which you seem to have a leg in both
