Before any victim of domestic abuse needs, before they can leave, is to recognise they are in fact victims. They are brainwashed into believing it is their own fault: it’s what they said; it’s what they did; it’s what they didn’t do; it’s how they did it; it could even be the look or expression on their face. Never blame a victim for staying. Help them recognise they are victims and that there is help available. Also let them know you are there for them, and will always be whether they leave or not. A perpetrator isolates his victim. Stay in touch. Learn all you can from the associations that are there to inform and/or help. It can happen to anyone, and often happens to strong women, not just subservient ones. Never judge, be a rock and recognise it takes time for the victim to unravel their situation enough to realise exactly what it is so they can then take the necessary steps to move away and move on.
