    Getting Help When Someone’s Hurting You

    It’s NEVER okay for someone to hurt you. You have a God-given and legal right to be safe and happy. Jesus says I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10.)

    It’s not God’s desire for you to be hurt. If you’re being abused in any way, you have the right to make it stop!

    Getting Help

    • Be sure to pray. Ask God for protection and guidance. Have faith that He will deliver you from the abusive situation.
    • Capture your fear. It may be scary to share what’s going on with others. You may fear retaliation or be afraid that the other person will be punished. However, the most important thing right now is that you’re safe and that the other person gets the help that s/he needs to stop this pattern of behavior. Remember, God will always protect you. Jesus says “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20.)
    • Use your resources! Tell a trusted adult about the situation. This could be your parent, a friend’s parent, minister, guidance counselor, teacher, coach, neighbor etc. Just tell someone! If you don’t feel safe telling someone that you know, contact The Department of Social Services or call a local or national child abuse hotline such as Childhelp.

    Remember, God puts people and resources in your life to help you. You have a right to you to use them!

    You were uniquely designed by God for a special purpose in this life. It’s never His desire for you to suffer abuse. Get help so that you can live the life of happiness and purpose that God has in store for you!
