Re: Budget101.com : Daughter in a abusive relationship
Hi Melissa, I can tell you from experience, she believes she either can’t do any better, or that she deserves to be treated this way. Prayer was the only thing that got me out. Just let her know she has somewhere to run to when she is ready to go. A lot of times it is a sudden spur of the moment thought, and if she has somewhere to go, it may be easier for her to go.
Also, be prepared, have the number for your local Center Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. They offer free counseling and a lot of times those who have been abused won’t talk to family about it. hth, Kristin
