Advice from people who have been there
Abuse doesn’t get better if you don’t do anything; it just keeps getting worse. You have to be your own friend. You have to have compassion for yourself.
Don’t punish yourself – I never thought I’d be in an abusive relationship but I WAS.
Once the “sorrys” don’t mean anything more than just as a way of keeping you right where he/she wants you, then it’s time to leave.
