There is a scary truth that many people stay in dangerous and difficult situations, whether that be domestic violence, an addiction to drugs or alcohol, or otherwise, because they do not have the support needed to leave. They might have been forced into isolation from loved ones, feel shame for their situation or are at risk of further hardships even after leaving.
We need to do better in supporting those who are attempting to better their situations. This design is meant as a declaration of support to get us talking about the hidden obstacles that keep people from walking away. We need to erase shame and hold abusers accountable instead of putting pressure and blame on victims and those suffering.
One of the first barriers that keeps people from walking away from a bad situation is just failing to recognize or acknowledge that there is a problem that needs to be fixed. If you want to support someone who you believe to be in denial, the best thing you can do is to get educated about that issue and approach them with facts. While you should never attempt to be an expert, being specific and clear can make a difference in getting through. (Psych Central)
One of the most difficult situations to walk away from is an abusive relationship, as you can’t always control what will happen after you leave. We need to do a better job in educating people on the signs of abuse. For example, if a partner threatens excessive violence (like saying “I will kill you”) the victim is 15 times more likely to be murdered than the average person. We need to do better in making it possible for victims to leave quickly and safely. (Psychology Today)
