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.

See Stories to read real stories from people who have experienced domestic violence and abuse in relationships.

The quotes above are just some of the advice that they have.

Learn from their experiences by reading about what happened to them, how they coped, what helped, and their advice for others. See also stories from women with disabilities.
