Dealing with a toxic relationship is hard work, and no survivor can go it alone. If you know someone who is in a toxic relationship, be it with a partner, a parent or someone at work, I can assure you they can use some help. What I have also learned from experience, is that not all help – however well-intended – is in fact helpful.

Clearing a Path for Renewal of Violence Against Women Act
"No excuse for abuse" - I'm often amazed at what people do to other people. Abuse can take many forms: verbal, emotional, sexual, and physical. Being a victim of abuse does NOT make you less of a person or inferior in any way. It is the abuser who should be ashamed. Bullies suck; abusive people suck; and those who fall victim to them should be lifted up and helped. And abusers should be called out for their shitty behavior. RM
