Leaving an abusive relationship is not always easy and poses threats to you and the rest of your family members and friends. You may still be in love with the abuser, in hopes that the situation will change in the future. Feelings of guilt and remorse may overcome you as you evaluate leaving the relationship, especially if you have children together.
In other cases, you may be scared to leave because of the abuser’s threatening or harassing behavior. Leaving becomes even more difficult if you do not have a job or the support of family and friends to start a new, independent life.
If you, or someone you know, is in an abusive relationship, or is planning to leave one, it is important to make a safety plan. You can call or text the 24-hour Safe+Sound Domestic Abuse Hotline to get the help, support and discuss safety planning at 866.685.1122.
