WHY THIS MATTERS
Abuse happens in many forms, towards oneself and others. It slowly creeps up in our lives such that after a while it seems like an acceptable way of being.
We need to become aware of the abuse we inflict on our own bodies and on the people around us. Recognize it and Stand Up to Abuse – emotional, mental and physical.
