The Cycle of Domestic Abuse
It is really common for a cycle of abuse to begin to take hold once domestic violence starts in a relationship. Your partner apologizes, you lower your guard, and over time, the violence rears its ugly head once again. Understanding the signs of domestic violence and causes of domestic abuse are crucial to breaking this domestic violence cycle. It is also important to break the generational cycle because when we come from an abusive parental relationship, we see the abusive relationship as ‘normal’.
