“Why don’t you leave him?”
While it might seem as to leave an abusive relationship, it’s a difficult choice for the victim.
Many victims realistically fear that their abusive partners’ actions will become more violent and even lethal if they attempt to leave. The abuser may have threatened to kill them or hurt their child or family member if they leave.
Leaving an abusive partner is one of the most difficult choices a victim can make, and telling their story afterwards is even more difficult.
