Not every relationship is full of sunshine and rainbows or roses and chocolates; some men and women/girls and boys are stuck in very abusive relationships and may be too scared to get out of it, or get help, in fear of their safety.
For those who are in a good relationship (or single, I guess it applies to both), just be thankful that this isn't you, even if you and your partner do have the occasional fall out, because some people are unhappy with the way their partners hurt them, whether it be verbal/mentally or physically.
Here's a piece from my university portfolio for my typography based and contemporary issues sections, thought I'd share in "celebration" of not only Valentines Day, but also I have been offered a University place somewhere
not my first choice, but at least I've got somewhere in case
I must say, despite never being in a relationship, I do feel lucky that I've never been in a relationship where I am maltreated. If I'm perfectly honest, I'm OK with being single; it's not like I'm going to die if I don't get a boyfriend
even if it does get hard when a lot of people try and pressure me into getting a guy or having sex with no commitments or whatever, I stick to my morals ^_^
For anyone out there who is in a relationship with a guy or girl who treats you badly, remember, it's not your fault, and you should not feel scared to seek help from counselors/etc for ways to deal with your partner or ways to get out the relationship. I wish you the very best of luck and think you're extremely brave
Hope you like~
