After experiencing abuse, Kaz was too afraid to leave.
“I began to believe that it was my fault and felt like I was in this rollercoaster that I couldn’t get off. I spent every day crying until finally enough was enough and I left. Still he came and begged me to give him another go and I did,”
Fortunately for Kaz, she had family and friends to help her understand that it wasn’t her fault. Eventually she got a restraining order and left for good.
Advice from Kaz:
“Get out before it is too late. I don’t know what would of happened if I stayed, I think about that and just feel very lucky that I started to believe in myself again and managed to get out of the web. It was my personal nightmare – one that I will never be in again.”
Leaving a violent relationship is complicated. Maybe today you take that first step toward understanding for yourself or for someone dear to you.
