Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse
It's vital that we erase negative thoughts about ourselves and focus on our strengths, not our weaknesses. Negative thinking only brings negative results. Positive thinking will change your mood, attitude, and outlook. Systematically, changing your life.
Abuse is never the victim's fault. It is a choice made by the perpetrator. People are in control of how they are going to react to people and situations. We have the ability to make choices.
Abuse is a choice.
