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!

Might be a little dark for some, but as someone who battles with depression I find this hilarious.
A funny and accurate depiction of those dreadful days when you feel like you can’t even move without messing it up- this is usually the end result.
