Christian Grey definitely changed the analogy of romance for many with his killer personality and ‘I will sweep you off your feet’ charm! Many went to the extent of saying that so far as he doesn’t hit me, I want a Chirstian for life. But is it really not abuse simply because the violence is not physical? #MaybeHeDoesn’tHitYou, but what about his looming presence? The constant control over what you wear, what you eat, where you go or who you meet. Is it normal? Is mental and emotional abuse not as bad as physical, if not worse in some ways?
In a bold attempt to explain that violence need not be physical, the One Love Foundation offers a very realistic outlook on what emotional abuse looks like in this video. Have a look, and find the strength to walk out of your relationship if you can relate to it cause #ThatsNotLove.
