Domestic violence and abuse are used for one purpose and one purpose only: to gain and maintain total control over you. An abuser doesn’t play fair. Abusers use fear, guilt, shame, and intimidation to wear you down and keep you under his or her thumb. Your abuser may also threaten you, hurt you, or hurt those around you.

You’ll want to do things you haven’t been able to do for a while. It’s like being set free from prison. And sometimes being alone never felt so good!

It is impossible to correct abuses unless we know that they’re going on.

Find the strength inside yourself to value your own worth more than staying with someone who only keeps you down

Push me away, if you don’t feel like you can be faithful, pull me close, if I’m the one you can’t leave without, hold me tight, I wanna stay in your arms, let me go, if all you have to offer is sorrow.
