Abusive Relationships And Looking For A Way Out

By Janine Jensenoris

Abusive relationships can be due to physical, emotional or mental abuse. You may be able to see the effects of physical violence from the marks on the body, but emotional or mental abuse is more difficult to detect.

If you see someone crying, stressed out, they may be a victim of some form of abuse. The first step is to refer that person to professional counseling, to get professional advice to confirm there is an abusive relationship and then work on a solution to end the stress on the relationship or how to end the relationship altogether, without incurring further harm.

Young Women In Abusive Relationships

One thing that makes me sad is the number of young women who find themselves in abusive relationships over and over again. It seems that there is something within these women that makes them think, that this is the best that they can get, even if they aren’t consciously having that thought.

I have seen some get out of one bad relationship only to jump into one that is even worse. This makes me even more determined to teach my daughter to respect herself and to expect nothing less from everyone else in her life.

Different Types Of Abuse

Abusive relationships aren’t always obvious. Though after while a woman who is beaten by a man will show some signs of it, there are other types of abuse.

You cannot deny that there are many who are in abusive relationships that go much deeper. You cannot discount the power of words and emotions. Sometimes these are even worse than being hit.

Mental And Emotional Abuse

When someone is abusing someone mentally and emotionally, it might not be something evident to anyone else. This is much easier to hide.

No matter what is going on, abusive relationships take their toll. Women with low self worth are left feeling totally worthless, and they feel that they deserve what they are getting.

Those who are strong don’t understand this, and there is a good reason for this. You don’t know what it is like to be in abusive relationships until you are in one. There are many things that lead up to a woman being pulled into a relationship like this, and it is often an accumulation of life events that only they can understand.

Building Self Esteem

If you are worried that your daughter may end up in abusive relationships there are a few things that you can do. You have to start early in life to build their self esteem. There are no limits on the what your words will mean to your daughter as she grows.

It is never to late to start either. Make sure you teach her that that only person she has to answer to is herself, and she deserves nothing less than true love and respect from a partner. Though you may not be able to completely shield her from abusive relationships, your word and your influence can go a long way.

You may sometimes feel that your words or what you do are bouncing right off of her unheard, but I can assure you that you have the biggest influence in her thinking and how she sees herself. Don’t let her down.

Seeing Abuse In Others Can Be Confronting

Seeing signs of any type of abuse can be confronting. When I was in college, I attended a party and there was a girl all covered in bruises. I have never seen anything like this before. I was shocked. You could see marks all over her arms, her legs, her face. It was awful. She was so brave to attend a party with bruises everywhere.

I asked her what happened and she said her partner keeps beating her up. I put her in touch with the college counselor to get a review of her options and some advice about how to get out of this abusive relationship.

It was the least I could do for my fellow student.
