There are lots of harmful myths about bisexual people. If someone you love is bisexual, learn how you can support them!
If you identify as bisexual and have experienced biphobia from a partner or someone outside your relationship, you deserve support!
It’s not okay for anyone to use what has happened in your past (by choice or by force) to gain power and control by blaming, shaming or making you feel guilty.
In most abusive relationships, when an abusive partner acts “nice,” it’s really just that: an act.
Healing the emotional effects of abuse can be challenging. One option for survivors is working with a support or service animal.
Terms like narcissistic, antisocial/sociopath or borderline personality are often used as explanations for abusive behaviors, but this can be problematic for a few reasons.
If you are having trouble finding a safe way to communicate with others for support, we have some options to consider.
When a person depends on their partner for any form of caretaking, there may be additional risk for abuse because of a power imbalance.
While it’s normal to want to help someone you love, there is no way to ‘save’ or ‘fix’ another person.
It’s important to try and understand what a person who is being abused is going through, why they might stay in an abusive relationship and how you can help by supporting and shifting power back to them.
Many people struggle with the belief that divorce is a sin when considering leaving their abusive spouses.
