Staying Safe After a Breakup When Your Ex is Abusive or Violent
I'm writing a more detailed piece on this topic for breakup-coach.com, but since it's almost the end of Domestic Violence Awareness month I wanted to post some initial thoughts. While many of us end up pining away after an elusive ex, too many others have to deal with a former partner who won't leave us alone. This may range from annoying drunk texts in the middle of the night to real terror and violence.
If you feel unsafe in any way because of your ex or a current partner, you can use the National Domestic Violence Hotline as a resource, 1-800-799-7233 or ndvh.org.
Be smart, be safe, please.
