Ok, I’m being abused. So what do I do now?
When a person realizes “I’m being abused in this marriage,” what do they do then?
Should you leave? Should you stay? If you are going to leave, how do you go about it? What are the tips for young players?
So it’s Abuse – What now? is a site that answers these questions. It’s written by a non-Christian survivor, but we trust our readers to be discerning; where it mentions “karma” just replace this with the biblical concept of reaping what you sow.
Also bear in mind that the author at that link is an Australian, so some of what she says may be more relevant to Australians than to people from other countries (for example, legal info and links).
If any readers here want to add their own ‘tips for young players’ on how to get out of abusive relationships, please go ahead.
I’m not asking you to tell your long stories of escaping and building a new life here, just try to think of tips you could pass on to those who are still living in abuse but are thinking of leaving. Gems. Pointers. Key reminders. That kind of thing. I suggest you read the link above, and then if you have anything to add, put it in a comment on this post.
I’m adding So it’s Abuse – What now? to the Resources page as well, so it will always be easy to find.
