OCTOBER is the month to be talking about DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!

Of course this is not the easiest thing to discuss-much easier to sweep it under the rug and pretend this happens to “other” people- not me, not my friends, not my family. But we can’t hide from the truth. Domestic Violence affects all of us directly and indirectly. We don’t want to live in a world where people are afraid to go home, to talk to anyone about their unsafe circumstances, or seek help when they need it.

If you’re a survivor of violence, do a quick check:

1) Are you safe?

2) Do you have people you can turn to for help?

3) Are you thinking about how you can look to your experience to help someone else?

Now’s the time for all of us to be brave enough to help someone else. Who better than you, a survivor of violence, to get the conversation going about why domestic violence must STOP NOW!

Be the change and turn your recovery from violence into something positive!!
