No individual deserves to be in an abusive relationship—it’s psychologically, emotionally, and physically taxing. If you or anyone you know has found themselves stuck in an abusive relationship, the below tips can provide direction on how to get out and find safety.
First and foremost, know that you are not alone. Many individuals find themselves in a similar position and it is not your fault for being in this situation. Every person has the right to make decisions about their own life, and it’s important to remember that you are in control.
Once you have come to this realization, you will need to decide if you should stay or leave the relationship. Staying may be an option if your partner is willing to work on their abusive behaviour and is receptive to finding assistance from a professional. The most important thing to do before deciding is to think calmly and clearly and seek advice from someone you trust—a close friend, family member, or professional therapist.
If you choose to stay and your partner refuses to take steps in changing their behaviour, then you may need to consider leaving the relationship altogether. Attempt to come up with an exit plan and find a safe place to stay until you can find a permanent, safe living situation. If you fear for your safety, it is important to seek out help from a crisis hotline and or law enforcement.
When attempting to get out of an abusive relationship, it’s essential to remember that there is no set timeline for healing. Taking small steps will help your process, and once you are out of the relationship it is essential to seek support from those around you who will be able to provide comfort and understanding. Many treatment centres or even support classes can be beneficial in recovering from an abusive relationship. Additionally, remember that you have the right to speak up and ask for justice if you have been the victim of any form of abuse.
Finally, getting out of an abusive relationship is no easy feat. It is important to remember that you are in control of your own destiny, and any decision you make is a valid one. Seek out help and understanding and you will be able to move past this difficult part of your life.
