Unless you are victims or a survivors of an abusive relationship, lord Forbid, you cannot understand just the amount of strength to leave or get over over that situation.
Can you imagine someone you love deeply being the cause of your greatest pain? Or worst still. Walking away from a relationship while still in love with that person. If you can do this, then you are freaking strong.
I believe that part of self-love and self-care is doing the difficult things but will eventually benefit us. So, even if it hurts to leave, always choose you. The goal is to live a little longer in this world and be happy while at it.

Again. I doubt that a person who abuses you loves you. Most abusers are incapable of loving anyone else but themselves. Love is not supposed to hurt, and it shouldn’t. To anyone in an abusive relationship right now, I want you to know that I understand. You can love a person who does not love you back, but it is wise to love them from a distance. Loving them from afar will help you get over them sooner.
Your life, sanity, mental health, and happiness are your responsibility, and they should not be entrusted to anybody else. You deserve to be happy, loved, and healthy.
To victims contemplating leaving or staying and to survivors of abusive relationships, I have prepared a list of 60 affirmations for you. Read them out loud, recite them and believe them. Although I know it is hard to let go, I hope these affirmations will ascertain to you that you deserve all the good things in this life and help you act accordingly.
