October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Motivational speaker, Lisa Nichols, powerfully speaks about being in an abusive relationship that ended with her being clinically depressed.
If you know somebody in an abusive relationship go to the ends of the earth to help them by finding support. A lot of times we mean well but abuse is a VERY sensitive subject you may not fully understand if you haven't experienced it. Practice patience and consult any of the many support lines.
Getting out is not the end of the story. People leaving abusive situations need continued support. If you don't think you'll be consistently capable of being a shoulder find them a safe space like a support group.
