Abuse in a relationship whether physical, emotional or verbal should never be accepted. No woman should accept this behavior as the norm. It is not only toxic and damaging to her psyche, but it introduces fear into a relationship that once was filled with love, trust and respect resulting in an experience that can never be forgotten.
Some women remain in abusive relationships because they believe the man can change. They give so many excuses to ease the burden in their minds: “he wasn’t that way from the beginning” “he’s just going through a phase” “he’s acting out because he’s hurting…” bullshit! He’s hurting you intentionally because he knows you’ll take it and still have your arms wide open when he comes groveling (if ever). An abuser will tests your limits by pushing you to a breaking point. They can go as far as planning their outbursts carefully and go out of their way to be offended just so they can lash out at you. He wants you to feel useless.
