#MaybeHeDoesntHitYou

Earlier this week, a new hashtag trended on Twitter: #MaybeHeDoesntHitYou

It was used to highlight abuse and violence that goes beyond the physical, because while that's often the most obvious form, it's far from the only.

Women from around the world weighed in, posting devastating tales of abuse across the spectrum. They shared stories of emotional manipulation, social isolation, financial abuse and more, highlighting that abuse is rarely as obvious as we think it is.

If you or someone you love is in an abusive relationship, there is help out there. The National Domestic Violence Hotline (800-799-7233) is a good place to start.

If you don't need help, but would like to offer it to others, please consider donating to my fundraiser for the Run DV Team.
