Domestic violence is a fact of life that far too many women have to live with. It is the ultimate form of bullying for it invariably comes from someone a woman loves and trusts. It can be physical and verbal in nature, unrelenting or occasional but anytime it happens it is one time too many.
In the following graphic I’ve looked into the stats provided by the US Department of Justice and am shocked at the numbers revealed. Do not suffer in silence like a friend of mine once did. There are support groups and refuges that can very easily help. There just comes a time when you have to realize your partners actions are not going to stop no matter how many promises are made.
If you know or suspect someone is on the receiving end of such abuse find a way to help.
