Domestic violence should not happen to anyone, but it does. It can vary in frequency and severity. It often starts with emotional abuse. This behavior can progress to physical or sexual assault, and several types of domestic violence may occur together.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, it is not your fault. There are many resources for abuse victims. Talk to someone who will listen and support you.
