Red Flags for Domestic Violence

Does your partner:
◦Expect you to spend all of your time with him or to “check in” with and let him know where you are?
◦Act extremely jealous and/or possessive of you?
◦Isolate you by controlling where you go, who you see and talk to, what you wear?
◦Treat you with disrespect and put you down?
◦Put down your friends and family, your dreams, ideas and/or goals?
◦Lose his temper frequently over little things?
◦Make you feel as if you are walking on eggshells to keep the peace?
◦Make threats to hurt you, leave you, hurt your pets, destroy your property and/or commit suicide if you don’t do what he wants?
◦Play mind games or make you feel guilty?
◦Refuse to take responsibility for his actions? Blame you, drugs or alcohol, his boss, parents, etc. for his behavior?
Then this is NOT LOVING BEHAVIOR…
