OMG! How is it February 6th already?
I was scrolling through my Facebook feed the other day-actually one late night in which I was trying to make myself tired enough to go to sleep-and I saw a lot of NONSENSE. Now, I didn't go off on a de-friending spree or point a finger at the friends who are posting such silly and insignificant things, but I did wonder:
Doesn't anyone have anything important to say?!
There's a lot going on in the world that we should be talking about today. As always, in February, I privately and publicly talk a lot about love and relationships with clients, friends, family, fans, and, umm, anyone who will listen.
This year, I have also started a conversation about dating violence. Specifically, teen dating violence. Did you know that February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month? It is the time for a month-long national attempt to raise awareness about abuse in teen and 20-something relationships. Those who spread awareness hope that people will support the programs that can help end the physical, psychological, and emotional abuse that at least one in ten teens experience in dating relationships, in 2018. I am one of those people.
Do, you too, feel drawn to this important cause? If so, check out this article I wrote, "What Dating Violence Is & Why You Need To Know About It" published last week, at The Teen Mentor. Please pass this on to anyone who you think could benefit from learning about the signs of dating violence and what can be done to create healthy relationships.
