To end a relationship with your family, friend, or lover is never easy. To put an end to an abusive relationship though is even harder, especially if you have already established an unyielding bond with your partner for several years. However, you can escape from this ordeal once you notice any contributing factor.
In case you have finally decided to avoid an abusive relationship, stop overthinking for a while. First, do your best to stay composed so that you can think clearly, give this decision an ample thought, and then find your way out of that suffering based on that reflection.
Although it is not wrong to do nothing but hope for any signs of such unhealthy rapport to cease on its own as moments pass by, such idea is not advisable because it is highly likely that there is an unfortunately slim chance of your partner to change for the better even if your partner has already undergone counselling.
Before you transition into getting out of the abusive relationship, keep in mind a number of possibilities that may occur, such as your partner’s violent reaction to this decision and any other castigating things that your partner might possibly do to stop you from doing so. It is also highly recommended that you formulate a communication method that only you and your emergency contact can understand, a safety or escape route, and other few evasive manoeuvres ahead of time.
In the event that you cannot summon the courage to stay away from such risky affair, do not hesitate to reach out to the nearest social services centre in your local area.
