What are the signs of relationship violence? Unfortunately, the signs are not as obvious as you’d think. As much as domestic abuse is about hurting someone’s body, it is also about controlling their mind and emotions. Abuse can leave victims confused and scared, and it doesn’t usually begin as physical. The abuse can creep up slowly and by the time it ramps up, victims often feel trapped.
If you think you or someone you know is being abused, it’s worth getting help. Consider the warning signs as these behaviors have no place in a healthy relationship.
