Family and relationship difficulties
Everyone in their life goes through at least 1 family or relationship difficulty. Whether that’s arguing with your sister or storming out after an argument with your boyfriend it’s perfectly normal though. Being around someone/ or a lot of people for a long amount of time is bound to cause disagreements. The problem is when these disagreements become to get out of hand.
You should ALWAYS report it or tell someone if you have experienced any of these.
Remember, a problem told is a problem half solved.
I have been in a lot of difficult situations myself, and I have made the mistake of not telling anyone. Ignoring the problem will only make it worse. If you feel threatened in any way make sure you tell someone!
Some of the problem I have faced is when my Mums boyfriend is drunk. He normally annoys my Mum a lot and they end up arguing then my Mum storms out so I am left alone with him at 3-4AM, sometimes she takes me with her and we have to walk around London all morning. When we come back he normally verbally abuses my Mum.
This is another thing. Even if it’s not you who’s the victim, if you are worried about someone then you should pass it on to someone else. Don’t let them suffer in silence. Often abuse victims are too scared to speak out in case the situation gets worse. Whatever decision you make, there are safeguards and support in place for you and your family.
Remember that you are not alone.
