They are the peanut butter to your jelly, the yin to your yang, and the sun to your moon. But, what if the peanut butter has gone bad, yin has grown darker, and the moon has eclipsed?      

Many people are trapped in abusive relationships that they’re afraid to leave, and some don’t realize that the relationship has taken a turn for the worse.

If your significant other:

  • Checks your phone or email without permission
  • Constantly puts you down
  • Easily becomes extremely jealous or insecure
  • Has an explosive temper
  • Isolates you from your friends and your family
  • Makes false accusations
  • Has severe mood swings
  • Physically hurts you in any way
  • Is very possessive
  • Tells you what to do constantly,

they have to go.

If they are forcing you to stay with them, notify another person who can help or seek help.

You can also text “loveis” to 22522 or call Safe-to-Tell at 877-542-7233.

Love doesn’t always stick around in relationships, so don’t be afraid to seek help or end the relationship if you’re unhappy. Do what makes you happy and safe, especially in relationships. Severely abusive relationships need to be reported to the police.  

Abuse can happen to anyone, and it’s an extremely serious matter that needs to be taken care of. If you suspect abuse, pry a little, or tell an adult that that person may be in trouble.
