When many people hear that someone is in an unhealthy or abusive relationship, their first question is, “Why don’t they leave?” If you’ve never been through an abusive relationship, this type of response might seem logical.
Leaving an abusive relationship is hard for many reasons. Society normalizes unhealthy behavior so people may not understand that their relationship is abusive.
Oftentimes, when an abusive situation happens, it is followed by the doing something nice or apologizing and promising that they will never do it again. This makes their partner feel safe and lovesick again to stay with their partner.
Many times, leaving an abusive relationship is not only emotionally difficult, but can also be life-threatening. In fact, the most dangerous time in an abusive relationship is post break-up.
Women are 70 times more likely to be killed in the weeks after leaving their abusive partner than at any other time during the relationship. Chai! Love No Easy o!
