Domestic Violence Awareness Month is October. The purpose is to help people become AWARE of the various ways someone can be abused and not know it. When you love someone, you expect them to treat you with respect, courtesy, gentleness, patience, kindness, putting you first and most importantly, faithfulness. But some people are in relationships with people who are possessive, demanding, controlling, mean, disrespectful, and who cheat. Emotional and Psychological abuse is demeaning and destructive. You do not have to be hit to be hurt.
