“On Domestic Abuse — One More Thing to Read” A Reblog

“Bruises don’t always show, and we are not around her most of the time. Furthermore, emotional scars manifest in different ways. Victims find ingenious ways to cope with the terror, which again doesn’t happen round the clock.

On Domestic Abuse — One More Thing to Read

This is such a meaningful story. This leads us to ask the question “What do we do?”.

This narration shows the difficulty level that helping has reached and we must hope that she is doing alright. -F
