If you’re in an abusive relationship, you need to break up. Sometimes this is much easier said than done, especially if you love them. But think about what will make you feel safe and happy, not just now, but also in the future.
If you decide that you can’t get out of your relationship right now, you can still do things to be safe. Try to have other people around when you’re together, and make sure at least one person always knows where you are when you do spend time alone.
If you feel ready to break up, don’t let them talk you out of it. Be confident in your decision. If they react to your decision by threatening you, themselves, or others, tell an adult you trust as soon as you can.
There’s no way around it: breakups are always hard. Breaking up with someone who is abusive can be even harder. It’s okay to feel like you’ll miss your boyfriend/girlfriend — just keep reminding yourself why you want to leave. You need to do what’s best for you.
The most important thing about ending an abusive relationship is safety. Don’t be afraid to ask your parents and friends for help. If breaking up in person sounds scary or unsafe, then maybe it’s better to call, text, or e-mail, even if it feels mean.
