Domestic Violence is a pattern of emotionally, physically or sexually abusive behavior that one person uses in a relationship to control another person. It can occur in families and friendships, and the manipulation is often times very subtle. Are you a victim of domestic violence?
Ask yourself these questions…
Are you frightened by you partner’s temper?
Are you afraid to disagree?
Are you constantly apologizing for your partner’s behavior, especially when they have treated you badly?
Do you have to justify everything you do, every place you go, or every person you see just to avoid your partner’s anger?
Does your partner put you down, then tell you that they love you?
Have you ever been hit, kicked, shoved or had things thrown at you?
Do you not see family or friends because of your partner’s jealousy?
Have you been forced into having sex when you didn’t want to?
Are you afraid to break up because your partner has threatened to hurt you or themselves?
