09 Jan 80 Ten Signs of an Abusive Relationship
In the continuation of myReal Love Revolution series, today I will be talking about abusive relationships. What are the signs that you might be in an abusive relationship? What can you look out for, especially if you come from a background where you had violence in your home or verbal or emotional abuse in your childhood? The more awareness you have around this topic, the more you can spare yourself this painful experience.
I am gearing up for the Real Love Revolution course, and I’ve got an amazing group of women on Facebook who are learning and asking questions, doing meditations, and hanging out with me. Join us!
And of course, keep an eye out for follow up episode about how to safely leave an abusive relationship.
