Safety should always start at home. Unfortunately for many women, the victimization occurs at home by a close family member or friend. This relationship may seem harder to fight, but it still needs to be done to ensure your personal safety. If you are the victim of domestic abuse, your first step is to get out the situation. Talk to someone at your local shelter for abused women or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline. They can provide you with the steps needed based on your situation. If necessary, contact the police and ask for an escort out of your home. You can regain your life and increase your sense of safety after you leave a situation like this.
