If someone trusts you enough or, simply happens to be in the awkward situation where there is nothing to do but share a story that includes violence and abuse, simply say, “I’m so sorry.”

“But, he looked so nice in the pictures. You seemed so in love.”


Do NOT ask. . .




“What did you do to deserve it?”
