  • b/c we dont think there is anything better out there. and nothing can top the pain that we are already in, so whats the use in even trying b/c we have no support or we are too afraid. that, or we really just dont know what to do and we are so used to it b/c its an on and off thing that doesnt happen everyday. and maybe we push there buttons and believe the things they say is true. even though deep down its not but we are in denial.

  • Battered women's syndrome: If you are a victim, call the National Domestic Violence Helpline 1-800-799-SAFE. If you can't do it for yourself, do it for your kids. Girls who see Mom battered often marry batterers. Boys who see a battered Mom may learn to batter the women in their lives. It may be hard but you CAN break the cycle.

  • because we have let society convince us that we need a man in our lives.they can make us miserable but hey,as long as you have does'nt help that we women have made up much more cleverer excuses for them than they could ever dream up themselves.if you stay stay with a man that has abused you in any way then you probarbly think you deserve it,and only you know why you think so low of yourself.

  • geesh...this is a deep question for such a little space, but all PP are right.When we are with a man who abuses us, we get to a point where we question every little thing we do/say/think even our own sanity.its a vicious circle that takes alot of strentgh and courage to break, but its possible, I am proof of that.:o)as for love...its not loving them so much that makes us stay, its not loving ourselves enough to go.
