I have never been in an abusive relationship and I would make sure that I never will. <br />
But, all I have to say to the victims is:<br />
1. staying with partner = ongoing abuse leading to murder <br />
2. leaving partner = freedom, independence, peace, and joy with a much better person
I didn't have the guts to leave until our 6 month old got hit once instead of me. I realized then that it wasn't just about me. Then I moved 900 miles away. I've never regreted it. My beautiful daughter is almost 13 now & an amazing person
If you had stayed in the relationship, then you and your daughter would had been in great jeopardy.
A truce.<br />
Lots of make up sex and<br />
usually by someone leaving.
never been in one...ever... would not let a guy hit me. Have a friend... every guy she has had, has hit her... every guy!!
serious.....now my friend wont leave him because he makes good $. her kids, & even their kid, together, don't like him.
After 21 years I walked out I left everything including him behind
It was that near death experience he put me through...And yes I did still love him....DID but not anymore
Yes and I thank God his aim was off
No he is living in his own hell now his health has got the best of him
Before he could hit me again, his dog attacked him and tore the flesh of his arm down to the bone - I ran to my car , got my already loaded gun and gave him a choice - he chose to live. I never had a problem, or relationship, with him again
I imagine he beat the crap out of her - after his trip to emergency - I never went back. The funny thing is she was the SWEETEST dog, never a hint at aggression even when she had puppies
She was a lifesaver for me that's for sure - if he would've connected I would've been toast
With forgiveness and generosity and acceptance. Despite what is said so often, people can change for the better. It is never too late to help someone onto the right path or choose it for yourself. It isn't a clean slate though, because memories do not work that way. The scars formed from the bad times will never fully go away, but they can serve as a reminder of what shouldn't ever happen.
He ended it. I didn't initiate the breakup.
