Never stay too long in an abusive relationship of any kind, he might not hit you but abuse can be emotional and psychological. The way he talks to you, those petty remarks. pic.twitter.com/UyrWvo5Qui

If you wake up tomorrow filled with love but their eyes burn with something you don’t recognise…Walk away. Don’t try to understand his anger just because it’s #ValentinesDayDon’t try to calm him with your love when they strike. May God protect you sister woman. #RememberReeva pic.twitter.com/ttOg6LJMpT
