It's not as easy as simply walking away. Abusive relationships are extremely complex situations and it takes a lot of courage to leave. Abuse is about power and control. Beyond the physical risks of leaving an abusive situation, there are countless other reasons why people stay in their relationships.
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 sort of response might seem logical. Just throw the deuces up and move on with your life – right? But here’s the thing – when it comes to relationship abuse, it’s never as easy as “just leaving.” I am here to tell you why!
Leaving an abusive relationship is hard for many reasons.
No matter the circumstances, survivors deserve to be supported in their decision-making and empowered to reclaim control over their own lives.
