Nicki Minaj offered her thoughts pertaining to recognizing when one is in a toxic or abusive relationship as well as being empathetic to other women who find themselves in that situation through a series of tweets made on Sunday afternoon (September 1st).

“When u see a woman in a toxic relationship, rather than laugh & say mean things, try to offer sound advice from your heart & root for her to learn her worth,” she wrote. “We’ve all been there. I saw my parents fight & argue non stop & never divorce, so I thought this was normal behavior.” Minaj also laid out some clear signs of when things are going wrong: “Dear all of you beautiful souls. A man who loves you does not: 1. Humiliate you on social media 2. Beat you 3. Cheat on you 4. Call you out of your name/put you down to lower your self esteem due to his own insecurities. 5. Hide his phone, passwords, where abouts, etc.”

After dropping more knowledge and support, the “Chun Li” lyricist closed with a final thought: “But I first had to learn how to love MYSELF. if you wouldn’t let a man treat your mother, your sister or best friend like that b/c you LOVE them, then you wouldn’t let a man treat YOU like that b/c you love YOU. This isn’t about judging. We judge too much. Lift them up.” These messages come at a time when mental health is a national conversation.  See the whole string of tweets below.
