Are you a victim of domestic violence or stuck in an abusive relationship? Abuse comes in many including: physical, emotional, verbal, economic, mental, and sexual abuse. Remember that abuse can happen to anyone. Often times there are red flags early on in the relationship and most people tend to ignore them. When someone is trapped in an abusive relationship, most victims won’t open up and talk about their problems with others. Most victims will often hide the abuse, claim that it was an accident, or make excuses. When in an abusive situation, most people think that their abuser is going to change, that their situation is going to improve, or the abuser is going to get the help they need. However, most abusers are stuck in a constant pattern of abusive behaviors and the victims are often continually abused.
