This is a continuation of the blog, drop that zero and get yourself
a hero.  Ladies, please don't stay in a relationship that is abusive.
Domestic violence can be defined as a pattern of abusive behavior
in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain
power and control over another intimate partner.

Domestic violence can be physical, sexual, emotional, economic,
or psychological action or threats of action that influence another
person.  This includes any behavior that intimidates, manipulates,
humiliates. isolates, frightens, terrorize, coerce, threatens, blame,
hurts, injures or wounds someone.

Statistics shows that one in four women have experienced domestic
violence in her life time.

Women accounted for 85% of the victims of intimate partner
 violence, men accounted for approximately 15%.

Women ages 20-24 years of age are at the greatest risk of non-
fatal intimate partner violence.

Separated and divorce males and females are at a greater risk of
nonfatal intimate partner violence.

Women of all races are about equally vulnerable to violence by an
intimate partner.

What are the warning signs of domestic abuse?

1.  Extreme jealousy or insecurity.
2.  Constant put downs.
3.  Possessiveness or treating you like property.
4.  Telling you what to do.
5.  Constantly checking in on you.
6.  Explosive temper
7. Making false accusations
8. Preventing you from doing things you want to do.

Domestic violence isn't just an argument every once in a while.
Domestic violence describes an on going pattern of abusive behavior
when one person chooses to control the relationship through force, fear, pressure, or intimidation.

Domestic violence can affect anyone.  It is important to understand
that people commit domestic violence because they choose so, not
because they can't stop themselves.  Abusing someone is a choice.

We have to love ourselves and not stay in an abusive relationship.
Do yourself a favor and get out now.  The domestic violence hotline is
