Many consider abuse as some sort of physical hurt, but that is where the misconception lies. Abuse in itself is not just a physical act. Abuse presents itself in various forms. It can be verbal, emotional, and mental.
It is not being spoken of enough, but abuse in teenage relationships is very common. Young, teenage women today are looking to “fit” in. They want to be like the rest and in many cases, they allow themselves to be caught up in situations that are sometimes hard to come out of. This issue is very dear to me because I once knew a young girl who fell victim to domestic abuse.
