Respond, don't react.
Raise your hand if this sounds familiar.
- That gnawing feeling in your stomach. The dread of what you’ll hear next.
- The hope that things will get better, only to see them remain in the scary zone.
- Desperate to help them escape the abuse but everything you say doesn't seem to sink in and they run right back into the danger and often end up resenting you!
Whether we call it domestic abuse. Family violence. Intimate partner violence. Crazy making.
There are too many people impacted to ignore it.
And since COVID-19, the reported numbers have increased world-wide by up to 30%.
If we’re honest, every one of us has had someone in our life whose being (or has been ) abused in an intimate relationship. A client. An employee. A friend. A daughter. A son.
Yet, too often, we don’t know how to help.
- Offer everything? Your home. Your money. Your advice.
- Offer nothing? It will work itself out. It’s none of your business, right?
- Get direct? You’re worried this will end poorly, maybe even in death or a suicide, so you go rogue and unfiltered.
OR, is there something in-between?
You may have asked yourself what you can do to interrupt the too-common cycle.

Supporting someone you care about shouldn’t be a mystery.
There are tried and true ways to manage your own feelings about what’s going on while making a positive impact while taking care of yourself and maintaining your boundaries.
But who am I to be your instructor? I’m glad you asked.
