Great news! the right to a safe home act, introduced by asm. @davidchiu.sf, passed through the assembly judiciary committee today! this bill will ensure that californians who need emergency services, including survivors, can stay safely in their homes without the threat of eviction. #caleg#supportsurvivors#domesticviolence

Gaslighting is a form of manipulation used to create self-doubt and make another person feel like they're crazy. here are just a few of my warning signs that you may be dealing with a gaslighter:
1. they deny anything that you ever say even if you have recorded documentation of it.
2. what they say and what they do are always two different things.
3. lying is the norm for them.
4. they attack your character.
5. they build a defense of other people to gang up on not liking you.
6. they use projection and accuse you of things to distract you from what they're doing.
10. they commonly tell other people that you're crazy.
power and control do not belong in relationships as something to be gained by one and lost by another. to be in a relationship is to be able to dance and allow each other to influence the other one's life in positive and healthy ways. if you're struggling in your relationship reach out for free consultation. ☎️ (845) 343-2499 📲 (845) 244-0078 sessions available by skype, zoom & facetime too! ♻️ the hysterical @2psychobitches
3 years of mental, emotional, physical, digital abuse & reproductive coercion. a panic attack at 6 am that sends me to the er. medication to calm me because my own brain & body can not complete that task alone right now. i used to be embarrassed of what happened to me. i thought, how did i fall in love & stay in love with someone who would hurt me so deeply without a care? it's the reason i rarely post about it. or talk about the details. but if i don't, i'm not just silencing myself. i'm also doing a huge disservice to other women. it doesn't matter who you are, what you look like, where you live, your financial status, your personality, your mental health, or any other history you may have. the most common abuse victim is a woman. there's no evidence that she is any different from any other woman. nor that she did something that caused someone to abuse her. it is not, will not, & will never be her fault. "no one is abusive 100% of the time." "the caged bird sings with a fearful trill. of things unknown but longed for still. and her tune is heard on the distant hill. for the caged bird sings of freedom." i will be free. #domesticviolence#awareness#educate#humanrights#supporther#unhealthylove#neveralone
