Thread: Supporting others in abusive situations

    family member interventions or denialsor

    I liked the response from M
    "i wont have anyone telling me what to do with my life.
    had enough of that from my abuser, you know, dont need it from my supporters."
    I, personally, found that when I got my nerve up to share with (my first)
    family member, they used it as an opportunity to
    vent grievances with me and try to dictate my future actions.
    That wasn't helpful.

    Luckily, another, less judgy family member came through, and
    helped with my ESCAPE.
    ps. when the means of escape is clear, not theoretical, it's amazing how ACTIVE
    the victim can be.

    Can relate to what you say here GG once I had a clear plan and could see that yes 'this will work...will be hard but will work' my mind set changed...I stopped feeling helpless and stuck was able to see that I had a viable option - could leave - stop feeling like a victim start on the journey to becoming a survivor.
    Rest in my arms precious child; cradled and warm. You are safe. The war is over.
