Domestic abuse is not a joke, and many women (and some men) experience it every day. Getting away from a situation like that is hard - but as one user on Imgur shows - not impossible. "Sorry for the selfies. If this makes even one woman or man decide to leave an abusive relationship I'll have done a good deed," she wrote at the top of the post.
The brutal, shocking post features pictures of her forearm, bruised while trying to block the attacker, her battered face starting to well, partial hand prints, and even blood from when she stabbed her abuser. Look onward if you dare - and remember, that there's always help, no matter how bad the situation you're in.
