Am I a victim?

Your partner is always checking up on you, always wanting to know where you are and who you’re with.

He/she hits you and threatens to hit you or harm your children, pets or family members.

You are working but do not have access to your accounts or your bank card.

When he/she comes home at night, you are afraid. He/she prevents you from seeing your friends or family.

He/she constantly puts you down and tells you that you are worthless. His/her harsh words have made you lose all self-confidence. After mistreating you, he/she promises not to do it again.

He/she forces you to have sex even when you don’t want to.

Do any of these statements apply to you?
