‘It is better to come from a broken home than live in one.’ We mustn’t feel guilty about walking away, if it means we’re supporting our emotional wellbeing.
We find it hard to walk away, often because we think that we will be judged by others for coming out of our relationship, but it doesn’t work that way. Abuse is abuse, whichever way you sugar coat it.
As individuals, we are responsible for what we put out there. If we are rude or abusive, or our behaviour begins to hurt others, then that’s something we must deal with and change.
The fact that we’re making the decision means there should be no guilt attached to it. We need to be comfortable, particularly, if our decision is based around abuse. Guilt is no reason to stay in a relationship.
Where someone is being hurt, it is not us who will be accountable. It will always be the person who caused the hurt.
