It isn’t an occasional fight or even just a nasty argument.
It is a pattern of physical, verbal, or sexual threats or aggression used by one person in a relationship to control the other.
Abuse can range from emotional torment like name-calling and isolation, to harassment like stalking and intimidation, to violence and physical harm.
It affects every community; women and men; people of any age, ability, faith, or ethnic background; people who are rich or poor, highly educated or not.
Abuse can rob people of their inner strength, damage self-respect, and slowly chip away at self-confidence. Abuse is traumatizing. Abuse is wrong.
Abuse is not your fault.
You deserve more.
