Love should never hurt mentally, emotionally or physically and it should never compromise your life! This is why I'm dedicating this post to Domestic Violence Awareness Month. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence Fact Sheet, Did you know one in every four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime?
Shockingly, today an estimated 1.3 million women are victims of domestic violence. With so much going on in the world today, it's important that we take the time to just LISTEN to one another. Many times just being a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on can make a world of difference to someone's life. Plus, you should ALWAYS know there is a way out!
So if you or someone you know is in need of help, please call:

NATIONAL SEXUAL ASSAULT HOTLINE at 1-800-656-4673
