While it is critical to speak to someone about your domestic abuse, it is critical that you are picky about who you tell. Make sure whomever you tell has these following qualities.
1. They have your best interest at heart. Make sure they are going to be there to support and love you as you continue to get help out of your situation.
2. They will tell you the truth. They will not pity you, but uplift you.
3. They are not the latest gossip. Getting help does not include letting the entire world know of your abuse.
4. They have something to offer you, whether it is spiritual or they can provide information to resources or protection.
We know that as God's children we are to trust God with everything, so it is most important to tell God. He is our rock above all.
Read 2 Samuel 22:3
God has created specific gifts in others so that we can continue to use the resources of the world. God will tell you if they are someone that you can trust and He will tell you what to tell them.
