Cycle of Violence

Cycle of Violence

It may never feel like the 'right' time to leave an abusive relationship. You are living in a never ending cycle which prevents you from taken action.

When we are living in an abusive relationship, our emotions are pulled all over the place. Every time the abuse happens, your partner says it was because of you and a little bit of you believes it. Every time your partner says it will never happen again, we believe it will be the last time, otherwise why would we stay?

People who have never been in an abusive relationship often say "Why don't you just leave?". It's not that simple. 

The 'right' time never seems to come, so stop waiting for it. Take action now. Refuge is a charity supporting people experiencing domestic violence and abuse.
