A common phenomenon in victims of physical or psychological abuse is that they often remain attached to the relationship even though they are humiliated and abused by their partners.
The consequences of abusive relationships remain for years to come, and deeply scar the victimsâ€™ psychological balance.
Verbal abuse goes quite deeply in shattering the victimsâ€™ confidence and self esteem, she finds herself repeatedly apologizing for things she cannot justly be accused of.
In spite of this verbal and at times physical violence, victims cannot find the courage to tear themselves away from their partners, although they suffer from more hardship than pleasure.
For those afflicted by abusive relationships and wishing to break away from the perpetual mistreatment, but cannot face up with the consequences, it is important to face the evidence, that they are in fact victims.
It is important to recognize violence and not make excuses for oneâ€™s partner; it is essential to admit to the evident insulting behavior. Once these aspects are clear, prepare a getaway strategy.
This strategy must be both practical and logical; important factors must be considered, such as a place to move to, financial and emotional support you may need and any laws liable to protect you or if need be your children.
The outcome of breaking off these abusive relationships is never predictable, but it is important to take action and solve this injurious problem, which can be fatal both to you and your children.
