October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Use Your Words

For some individuals in our community, this month may be the time they chose to leave an abusive relationship for good. However, this is a very difficult decision to make and for some – it takes multiple times leaving, to finally leave for good. This can be frustrating for those of us on the outside looking in. For those who care about people and don’t like seeing them mistreated, physically harmed and verbally abused; over and over again.

What can you do? Use your words. Support those you know and care about. Make sure they know that you are there for them and support them, no matter what. Offer resources, rides or a safe place to stay if needed. Let them know you care about them and support them and that you honor their choices, that you believe they deserve to be treated with respect and then show them that respect. Let them know they are not alone.

Are you or someone you know being abused? Call the WCA’s 24-hour domestic abuse hotline at 208-343-7025 or visit wcaboise.org.

Join us as we work together to create a community where everyone thrives in safe, healthy relationships. Click here to visit the WCA’s DVAM page.

The Compassion Project: Let us be the ones who transform our world by allowing compassion to lead our action. Throughout the year, this column will feature the various ways to have compassion for others, for our specific organization, and for yourself.
