Domestic violence can take many forms. It may involve physical attack, verbal abuse, emotional manipulation, forced sexual activity, or financial control. Often abuse is not physical, but any type of abuse can lead to more aggressive actions in the future. Violence in a relationship is not an isolated incident, but a pattern of behaviors designed to control another person.
Here are some things you should know:
1. You are not alone.
2. The abuse is not your fault.
3. You deserve to live in a safe environment.
4. There are resources to help.
5. Hope can happen here.
