Tips For Getting Out Of An Abusive Relationship
If you are in an abusive relationship, then you need to get out of it. This is easier said than done, but it isn’t impossible. Here are a few tips that can help you get out of an abusive relationship.
Recognising that you’re in an abusive relationship is the first step you must make. Many people in abusive relationships are in denial and you need to come to terms with the fact you’re in an unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship. If your partner isolates you from others, hits you, controls you, is always emotional and blames mistakes on you or other people, then the chances are you’re in an abusive relationship.
Disengaging yourself from your partner is crucial for getting out of an abusive relationship. The chances are your partner may try to bait you into an argument and this can make things a lot worse for you, so it’s best to disengage yourself from your partner and ignore him when he tries to fight with you. The more you do this, the easier it will be to leave him.
Save money, but don’t let anybody know you’re saving and this goes for your partner, your close friends and family members. Open a bank account under your own name and start putting in as much money in it as you can. This will help you with expenses when the time comes to leave the relationship. You want to have money for shelter, food and living expenses. Make sure you have bank statements sent to a PO Box, because you don’t want your partner to know you’re saving money.
Get help and then leave. Help can come in the form of a women’s shelter, friends or family. You want someone to help you find a place of your own and when you do find a place, make sure it is far from your partner because you don’t want him to find you and you don’t want the chance of running into him. If you can’t get help, then consider speaking with a counselor, but make sure you leave the relationship as soon as you have savings and a place to go.
