I'm in an abusive relationship and trying to find a way out, but I'm not here asking for help, I know what I need to do. I just want to know when abuse became okay?
My sister watched my s/o knee me in my stomach when I was pregnant, choke me, slam me against a wall, and punch me in the face. She and her husband did nothing. Never said a word, even.
I'm talking to a friend of mine I've known since I was thirteen, and she's laughing and telling me she and her DH get physical all the time, but she knows how to fight and isn't scared of him.
