This important domestic violence conversation was sponsored by One2One Network. #BeTheSolution
Some days when I’m super busy out running errands and taking care of business, I can’t wait to get home. I envision myself in my sweet little nest, surrounded by my favorite people, and it gives me the push I need to make it through the day. My home is my resting place. I feel safe. I feel warm. I feel at peace. Regardless of how stressful things are out in the world, I’m comforted by the fact that I can always find peace at home. Not every woman feels this way, though. I have known many women who dreaded going home every day. There was so much uncertainty about what was waiting for them when they arrived. Some days, things would be fine. Other days, there’d be anger, chaos and violence. Living like that wore on them, not just physically, but mentally as well.
Blue Shield of California Foundation’s #BeTheSolution campaign is spreading the message that domestic violence is everyone’s issue to tackle. Each of us can play a role in identifying, addressing, and stopping domestic violence.
