For those that feel trapped or as if there is no choice but to stay in a destructive relationship, please know that there is ALWAYS a way out! Help is endlessly available, you just have to ask for it! Sometimes, the bravest course of action is admitting that you cannot solve the problem on your own & that intervention is necessary for your personal well-being. Knights in shining armor often appear in the form of your own self-awareness & acceptance. Speaking as someone who rarely asks for help until the situation is critical & who has endured abusive situations, please take whatever steps are necessary before you become another domestic violence statistic.

Signs of an Abusive Relationship Abusive relationships are progressive. They do not begin w/physical or sexual violence. Instead, tactics are used to gain control over the victim before hitting, kicking, biting, pushing or unwanted sexual activity is introduced. The following are signs of an abusive relationship. Emotional Abuse (name calling, criticizing, “joking” in a demeaning or embarrassing way) Intimidation (uses threats, looks or gestures to scare partner; breaking objects) Isolation (uses jealousy to control what partner does, who he/she sees, where he/she goes) Denies Responsibility (minimizes, denies or blames partner for emotions and behavior Uses Children (threatens to harm the children or take them away from the partner Financial Control (keeps partner from working or takes paychecks; demands account of all spending)
