These Tweets Prove That There's More to Abuse Than Physical Abuse
It's not all about the scars on your skin.

When we think of relationship abuse, we automatically think it's about being hit, slapped on the face, pushed to the wall, or even about obtaining scars and bruises on your skin. But the recent trending hashtag on Twitter, #MaybeHeDoesntHitYou, brings our attention to the type of relationship abuse we don't talk about often. (via ATTN.com)

Artist Zahira Kelly created the hashtag this month, and people started tweeting and sharing their thoughts on the matter.

Twitter users shared a few signs that one is in an abusive relationship. It might be in the way your partner controls you and tells you what to do.

It might also be in the way he tries to stop you from leaving the relationship in any way that he can, even if it involves his life and you feeling unworthy of anything good in life.

If you're in an abusive relationship, remember that you don't have to stay. It may be hard to believe this because he's conditioned you to think so little of yourself, but know that someone will always find you worthy of the best kind of love in this world.

Are you in an abusive relationship and in need of help? Contact the Philippine Commission on Women at (02) 736-5249 or (02) 736-7712.
