The Four Stages of Domestic Abuse

Upworthy posted this today… It’s just another terrifying reality of harassment and abuse. This tells me two things:

1. We shouldn’t be too quick to judge people who stay in abusive relationships; instead we should offer our support and presence. Especially if part of an abusive relationship is to isolate and/or alienate the victim.

2. Harassers and abusers are constantly testing the waters. We, as a society, need to make sure to push back and let it be known that we will not put up with it. That shit doesn’t fly here!
