Domestic violence isn’t easy to talk about. However, if we don’t talk about it we will never be able to rid ourselves of the stigma, shame, and silence associated with domestic violence. I am a survivor of domestic violence, and find solace in these songs. Music has a healing effect. For this reason, I wanted to share with fellow survivors.
So here we go. These are my 15 Songs For Survivors of Domestic Violence.
Face Down – The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Better Man – Pearl Jam
Gunpowder and Lead – Miranda Lambert
Church Bells – Carrie Underwood

On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. Victims/survivors of domestic violence should not be ashamed. The shame belongs to the abusers. However, until we stop the victim blaming, shaming, and ignorance the abuse will continue.
I hope these 15 Songs For Survivors of Domestic Violence help you as much as they have helped me.
