I Have Been In An Abusive Relationship

Not me......a friend....but.....

How do you deal with knowing a loved one is suffering abuse from the person who supposedly loves them? Mental abuse. They have confided in you.....but they keep going back because they love the person. There has been violence too....and control.....
Its so hard standing back knowing this is happening to such a wonderful sweet person.
Now....they no longer confide in me.....i worry one day something awful will happen....

I can't understand it. No matter how much I loved someone , I wouldn't stay not even a day with them , if they abused me in any possible way.

you just keep being there for them, in the hopes you'll be there when the fall happens and can aid in swift vengeful justice... or just shoot to guy and claim self defense
