What is Abuse?
It can be if someone constantly puts you down, threatens you or forces you to do something you dont want to. Some forms of abuse are against the law and its not always physical violence. Abuse in relationships can happen to anyone regardless of the type of relationship. Research shows that suffering from abuse in relationships is more common for young women but young men can experience it too. Abuse can harm you physically and emotionally as well as leave you feeling isolated and lonely.
