What is abuse
Abuse takes many forms and there isn’t one single way that ...
People might say things like, “(The abuser) seemed like such a nice person,” or, “(The abuser) just snapped because their relationship broke down!” Or even, “If you were being abused, why didn’t you just leave”?
These opinions are victim-blaming and play a role in allowing abuse to continue.
These kinds of opinions make abusers feel justified and like they are the ‘real’ victims. They also make it harder for genuine victims to get help, as they might blame themselves or feel ashamed. They might feel hopeless, like no one will believe or help them. They may also be scared of making the situation worse.
