Domestic abuse is a serious plague that infects numerous couples across the world. Sometimes it can be emotional, physical, or even verbal- abuse can take many forms and it can be hard to recognize.

Any survivor or domestic abuse will tell you the same thing, victims are really good at hiding any proof of their abuse. Which is why survivors have taken it upon themselves to reveal to the public the ways they used to shame themselves into silence.
