Nearly 1 in 4 women have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner during their lifetime. Tyler is one of those women and this is her story. Tyler thought she found the man of her dreams. A ‘real man’s man’ but since she grew up in a dysfunctional home, Tyler was never exposed to a healthy relationship nor did she know the warning signs of an abusive one… until it was too late.
In this episode, we discuss the 8 red flags of an abusive relationship. If you’re experiencing even just ONE of the warning signs, please call 1-800-799-7233 and/or visit thehotline.org.
If your insurances doesn’t cover therapy or are afraid to visit a therapist for fear of it being discovered by your partner, visit Talkspace, an online tool that connects you with a therapist, where sessions can take place either through text, video, or audio.
