Is someone you love crossing the line?

violenceDo they:

  • put you down
  • call you names
  • humiliate you
  • threaten to actually hurt or do something to you
  • hurt your pets
  • destroy the things that are important to you
  • keep you away from family and friends
  • control what you do, who you see and talk to
  • intimidate you by punching walls or throwing things
  • slap, hit, push, hold you down, choke you, pull your hair, confine you, force you to have sex or threaten use of a weapon?

They are not loving you – they are controlling you and abusing you.

If someone you love is crossing the line, tell someone you can trust.
