As you know by now, I really LOVE Iyanla Vanzant's work as a LIFE COACH! In this clip she is counseling a woman whose husband chokes and beats her. I am very aware that domestic violence happens to a lot more people than you or I could imagine on a daily basis! Working in the social work field broadened my eyes to this truth! I always ask myself.....what makes people STAY in such UNHEALTHY relationships. I have learned through my profession that it all boils down to what you witnessed in your childhood and where your self esteem lies that plays contributing factors! I have said this before and will say it again......TRUE LOVE IS NOT ABUSIVE!!!!!!!! I actually knew someone who was in a domestic violence relationship for years. She had children by her abuser and that did not stop him from MURDERING her one day! Domestic violence is a REAL AND VERY DANGEROUS!!!
If you are in an abusive relationship and fear for your life please call the National Domestic Abuse Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
Always know that you are WORTH EVERYTHING and NEVER deserve such treatment!!!!!!!!!!!
