If you or someone you know is dealing with domestic violence, here is what you can do. 

1) Talk to someone: Do not hold your feelings inside of you. Open up to someone you trust and be honest about what you are dealing with internally.

2) Call the police: Report the abuse to the higher authorities right away if you or someone you know is in danger.

3) Join support groups: Discussing your feelings with people who have been in the same position as you, as it can be very therapeutic and help you cope faster.
