As a follow up on our last blog post "Where is the line?" here are few signs if you are being abused according to "The House of Ruth"
When I first started getting involved with relationship violence, I often wondered, "Where exactly is the line?" I researched further and found several answers but all were rather indirect. As I further my journey with ending relationship violence, I know understand that answer just a little bit more and here is my own:
That start of a dangerous relationship begins with simple signs such as verbal abuse (there are other warning signs like control and bullying). Whenever you feel less of yourself, question your self worth, and do not feel equal to your partner that is when a relationship is becoming dangerous. Never let your partner feel any of these ways because NO woman deserves to ever feel like this. The line should defiantly never be crossed but no one should ever come close! From stories and research I know, most men don't immediately become abusive they gradually become more controlling and abusive. Recognize these signs before the line is crossed!!
