REASONS NOT TO RETURN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP

  • Remember that it was the abusive behavior of your partner which caused you to leave in the first place. You were not happy in the relationship.
  • He will continue to abuse you even if he promises you that he will never hit you again. The abuse will continue and it could get worse.
  • Abusers seldom stop their abusive behavior unless they get some form of counseling or therapy. Don’t go back and expect him to change because he says he has changed. As soon as he gets comfortable with you being back he will start abusing you again.
  • Abusers like to instill fear in their victims. He will try to make you so fearful of him that you are less likely to leave him.
  • He may become more possessive and controlling and try t isolated you from your family and friends. He might start keeping tabs on you, watching you more closely for any sign that you might try to leave again.
  • He will do everything within his power to make it impossible for you to leave again. He might even threaten to take your life.
  • The most serious of all the reasons is that he may follow through on his threats. You may never get the chance to escape a second time with your life. Some abusers are prepared to take the lives of their victims and then their own. Don’t let this happen to you.

Once you get the chance to leave the relationship never return to an abusive partner no matter how persuasive he may be.




Don’t Stay Stuck in Unhappiness

Relationships take hard work, and in spite of your best efforts, it might not work out. Sometimes people grow apart or they take each other for granted and stop nurturing the relationship.

Not every couple like to admit to themselves or want to let others know that they cannot make it work, so they stay together even when they are both miserable.

There is no point in holding on if you are not happy. There is nothing you can gain from staying stuck in unhappiness. Sometimes when you have given it your best shot, and it is not working out, you have to let go. Walk away. It is better to be alone than to stay stuck in an unhappy relationship.

Domestic Violence Awareness

Help Spread Awareness

Despite efforts to to raise awareness about the ills of domestic violence, women continue to die. Only a few weeks ago I learned of the horrible death of a young woman. Her killer slit her throat, then set her body on fire. They reportedly took her husband and two other men into custody in connection with her death.

No human being should receive this kind of treatment. It is wrong; it is immoral, and a heinous crime against humanity. If a relationship is not working out people have choices, but the choice to take another human life should never be one of them. May this young woman’s family get the justice they deserve.
