The Beginner’s Guide to

Leaving Unhealthy Relationships.

Some of the different forms of abuse include rape, violence and stalking, and in accordance to a study that was done, it was discovered that, approximately twenty four people are set to undergo such forms of abuse by their partners. One thing about such victims is that, they find it hard to leave such kinds of relationships even though the numbers increase over the years. Shame, taking advantage of control and instilling fear are some of the reasons as to why the victims of such kinds of abuse find it hard to leave the relationships. As a result of sticking around for a long time, death is the outcome of such kinds of relationships. Deciding whether the relationship is toxic or not is the reason that makes it hard to leave.

Some of the things done by the abusers no longer seem like abuse because the society has resulted to upholding some of the characters that are done by the abusers. Signs of a toxic relationship might be portrayed in different ways such as the self-esteem factor. Breaking down the self-esteem of the other individual that loves them is one of the ways in which an abuser can continue to abuse people, making the person being abused think that that is the best treatment that they can get. Secondly, a pattern of abuse cycle is another sign that you are in a toxic relationship. This is illustrated in a manner that, at one point, the abuser does an intoxication assault and then, they follow this with something really nice that makes you forget of their wrong doings where they fill you with false promises and good behavior.

Even if at one point the victim might have thought on leaving the relationship, the difficult part is always the actually leaving because they are tied up with the fact that their abuser might result to harming either them or their family. With these signs, the person being abused still tends to stick around the abuser because of reasons such as personal responsibility. Personal responsibility is shown in the manner that, the victim ends up thinking that it is their obligation to change the character of the abuser and thus, results to staying with them for a long time. Having hope for change is another reason as the victim is always full of hope that the victim shall be able to change for the best. Even when the victim has hopes for change towards the abuser, the abuser might not deviate from their ways because they might have been doing this for a long time.
