Violence isn’t just being physically violent in the form of pushing, hitting, punching or sexual, it can also be in an emotional and mental way in the form of control, manipulation, telling you what to wear, where you can and can’t go and put downs etc. There is NEVER a time when being violent is okay. Just because someone is a partner or friend it doesn’t mean they have the right to do anything, on any level, that is violent to the other person. If you feel that someone is being violent towards you please get immediate support.
