Being in an abusive relationship isn’t just physically hurtful to the person that is suffering at the hands of the abuser. It is also a very deadly situation in some instances. If you are in an abusive situation that you find it hard to leave, you should consider the possible outcome before you make a final decision on whether you want to stay or not. People die everyday at the hands of their abusers. Don’t be another statistic. Beat the odds by making yourself aware of just how deadly the game of abuse can be.
If you have ever been in love, you probably understand how hard it is to walk away from the relationship even though you know it is the right thing to do. It is even harder for the abuse victim to walk away. They not only love the person who is abusing them, they think they can change that person. The truth is that they can’t change the person that is abusing them. The other problem is that they fear the person who is abusing them. That makes it twice as hard to get away.
Abusive relationships can turn deadly very quickly. Victims of abuse often stay in the relationship because they fear for their life. The biggest problem with that is they are in danger whether they stay or leave. It is better to chance leaving the relationship to have a chance at safety and peace in their lives than to know that you will always be abused by this person. There is help available to get you out of an abusive relationship. There is protection for you but you have to seek it out. The only way that you can be protected is if you let others know what is going on in your home. The more you let people know that you are being abused, the safer you are. Abusers threaten that they will hurt you more if you tell, but they usually don’t. Once attention is brought on the abuse, they know any further abuse will be viewed as suspicious and could land them in jail.
Each abusive situation is different. There are some situations that are more dangerous than others and you have to act according to your particular situation. No matter how advanced the abuse is in your life, it will generally get worse if you don’t do anything about it now. The longer you let it go, the more you will suffer at the hands of your abuser.
If you are in an abusive relationship that you think won’t turn worse, you have to think again. There are rare instances where the abuse doesn’t get worse. Although it doesn’t always lead to death, it can easily turn into just that. Even if the abuser doesn’t kill you, the abuse can still be deadly for the actual abuser. Women often kill their abusive husbands to end the terror that they have been feeling. The women feel that they would rather spend the rest of their lives in jail than to live with an abusive husband. Abusive relationships can be deadly on many levels. This is one of those cases that you have to think outside the box to understand the full impact of how deadly physical abuse can be.
