On a Serious Note….
On a personal note: A friend of mine, my high school bestie was verbally, emotionally and physically abused by her boyfriend and she ended up marrying the guy. She was already insecure when they met – and he latched on to that. Luckily, she was able to leave him – but she still has the emotional scars and very real physical scars from him. If you suspect a friend or family member in the US is in this situation it’s hard to know what to do… I would suggest talking to someone at the National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1−800−799−7233 or click HERE for their website.
Take care of each other. -krisgo
