@JSullvianMusic: I have an interesting story abt pier1. The last time I was in this store was during my abusive relationship w my ex 3-4 years ago. I used to come and walk around this store for hours just to get away from him and the house. I would cry in here. The workers never bothered me. I guess they could tell a sad girl when they saw her. But today I was joyful, laughing and feeling love from my bestfraan. So I’d like to take the time to thank God for who and where I am today. Walking around this store w this happy attitude today may be small to anyone else, but I know from where God brought me. So I just wanted to share. Take a minute and thank God that ur not where u used to be!!! 🙌🙌🙏🙏
After looking at Jasmine Sullivan’s IG post, it made me stop and shout. I’m so glad I’m not who and where I use to be. Like Jasmine Sullivan, I survived.
Being in an abusive relationship is no joke. Speaking from my own personal experience, sometimes you may not even know that you’re in one, until you’re in one. It took me having a gun pointed to my head to realize I had been in an abusive relationship all along.
Jasmine Sullivan escaped abuse and here’s 7 signs you should look for.
1. If things begin to move fast and you address your concerns, but your significant other still insist on moving forward, you might want to gain control before it’s too late
2. Before courtship becomes serious, do you’re research. Go on the criminal record database, and look up their criminal history.
3. If you’re significant other is being forceful physically, causing you to feel pressured or uncomfortable be sure to remove yourself from the situation.
4. If you’re significant other breaks things when they get upset, they’re trying to intimidate you. This is a sign of abuse; part of control is submission from the victim.
5. Verbal abuse is just as bad as physical abuse; you should be respected at all the time.
6. If you’re significant other frequently displays jealousy and often accuses you of cheating, making it problematic for you to spend time with friends and family. Run!
7. If your significant other says things like “if you leave me I’ll kill myself, I don’t have anyone but you. “ You should worry, and tactfully try to isolate yourself from them more for your safety.
