Hey Everyone!! :-)
I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!! :-) Today, I have a short post about a difficult topic, domestic violence and abuse.
In Captivated By The Winter King, Kate, the lead female character has some experiences with a domestic partner, which, unfortunately, may be shared by some real people in the real world. Because of this, I thought it might be a good idea to help people find some of the resources available to those in a similar situation. Now, I'm not a psychological professional, and I'm certainly not in any position to tell anyone else how to live their life, but if you feel you might benefit by talking to someone better versed in helping those who are victims of domestic violence, you might want to contact one of the agencies listed below.
With the end of the holiday season, we sometimes forget to reach out to each other. I just wanted to remind everyone, you're not alone. So if you need help, please reach out to those who are waiting to offer it. If you live in an area that is not covered by any of the listed agencies, please contact your local authorities for assistance in locating an agency that does provide services in your area.
