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"
"You are frightened by your partner’s temper
You are afraid to disagree with your partner
You have been hit, kicked, or shoved by your partner
You do not see friends or family because of your partner’s jealousy
You have been forced to have sex or have been afraid to say no to sex
You have been forced to explain everything that you do, every place that you go and every person that you see to avoid your partner’s temper
You believe that you cannot live without your partner or that you cannot get enough of your partner
You believe that marriage will change your partner
Your partner makes you feel worse about yourself
You have fewer and fewer happy times together, and more and more of your time is spent on apologies, promises, anger, guilt and fear"
First and foremost, NEVER let anyone make you feel worse about yourself whether it be a friend, co-worker and especially your partner.If your partner has ever made you doubt your self-worth this could be the ultimate warning sign. Never let anyone decide your self-worth other than you and let me tell you... you are AMAZING!
