Domestic Violence Awareness Month, challenge 9

Be supportive.

Understand your importance as a friend. What you say and do can really make a difference in someone’s story. If a loved one confides in you that they are experiencing abuse, believe them and be there for them. This doesn’t mean you have to “fix” their situation for them. They may just need to feel that they are not alone. You can do so much just by listening and not judging them.

    This is good advice. Being a person who wants to help people, I would want to try and “fix” the situation for them.
