What we need to realize is abusive partners are people too. They have pain in their past that they don't know how to deal with. The only way they can deal is by enforcing complete control over their victims. While I agree victims need to be the first priority, we need to take care of the abusive too. Get them help so we can end the cycle!

After spending 3 years in a unhealthy relationship, I thought I would never hurt the same. I was wrong you surprised me!! How dare you treat me like that!! As I lay there next to you trying to figure out if I did something wrong. How dare you bring me back to blaming myself. Definitely not a man in my book. You have no compassion for me or what I've been through. I hope when I'm gone you turn your white pillow over and see the mascara that ran off my face. Goodbye
