No to GBV

It always starts with the word “I Love U”. Then he makes you feel you can’t live, breath, eat or sleep without him. He then later controls your every single action. You seek his every permission before you do anything. By the time you do a wrong he beats you up and you say that’s how he expresses his love you. Sweet heart let me say it now Love does not hurt, love does not suffer and it brings smiles. No to GBV

Thank you for sharing this! I agree, love does not hurt.
There is no place for GBV in our communities, and we can work to support and educate each other so that more of us can be free!
Warm regards,
Hannah

Hello, dear Tabe Ruth,

"I love you" should be tested in actions before a woman agrees to have a relationship with men. We shouldn't fall on those empty words. It's better be single than be a victim of his disrespect.

Thank you for speaking up on this issue! Keep it going! We stand with you!
