When someone hits you, it damages not only your body, but it touches your soul. Whether the abuse is physical, verbal, emotional or sexual, it’s not acceptable….it’s wrong. Abuse happens when someone intentionally mistreats exploits, degrades, isolates, or misuses others without any consideration for the integrity or worth of the other person. Counseling can help anyone take back control of their life and be the person God created them to be. If you are in an abusive situation, please seek help. Talk to someone— a counselor, pastor, domestic abuse hotline (CARE center 910-323-4187) or law enforcement.
