For change to come, change must take place. The victim of abuse must remove themselves from the situation in order for help to be received.
Get help now! Tell someone in authority that the abuse is taking place. Never let the abuse continue.
Get to a safe place!
Get counseling to help with the healing process
Establish Your Personal Bill of Rights
Now you will read the Personal Bill of Rights pledge on the next page; it is pertinent for any situation in your life. It is important to learn your rights as a human being, then don’t allow others to treat you in any way that jeopardizes your rights. The best way to handle any kind of abuse is to remove yourself from the situation and the person who is speaking or acting in a way that demeans who you are.
HOMEWORK: Use the Bill of Rights to establish your own Personal Bill of Rights! Where it states “You” change it to “I” to make it personal; this is your declaration of what you will and will not tolerate!!
Establish Your Personal Bill of Rights (continued):
