Sweet Cause: Sharing Domestic Violence Experiences

There is so much to talk about when it comes to awareness for any campaign:  how to help, what to look for, when things start happening, and who it happens to.

I’ve blogged a bit about what the signs of domestic violence are and what you can do to help someone who is a victim of domestic violence.

I plan to continue posts like these because I believe it’s important to educate people.  I couldn’t help but think, though, that personal experiences really drive home the importance of this awareness.

While I’ve briefly touched on my experience with domestic violence, and I’d like to give others the opportunity to share their experiences as well.

I’d like to feature survivors, those still in abusive relationships, children of these relationships, any story at all.  Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to contribute.  You can do so anonymously if you’d like.

Some posts will be guest posts here on Sweet Phenomena and other times I’ll link to posts that have been done before.

My bloggy friend, Meagan, is sharing her story today.  Meagan is an incredible lady who is always ready to help another blogger out, without even being asked.  You’d never know she had been in several abusive relationships.

Visit Meagan at Sunshine and Sippy Cups to read about her experiences with domestic violence, what finally caused her to rid herself of these relationships, and how she’s doing now!
