It's sad that when in an abusive relationship we may have tons of people telling us to leave but it's not always that black and white for us. We love them, even though they hurt us but we are ALWAYS hoping that things will get better. Where would the world be if we stopped looking for hope in all that we see wrong? What kind of world would we live in if someone hurt us and we ran without ever looking back? I'm in NO way saying it's right to stay in an abusive relationship, what I'm trying to say is we all have our "right" times to end it. I'm just trying to end the guilt that a lot of women have for staying longer then they should have. It's easy for outsiders looking in to say "leave now" but in our eyes we see a chance that things will get better. Even though it probably never will. We shouldn't be too hard on ourselves for wanting someone to become a better person. We also can't be too hard on the people who choose to stay because they have to reach the "I've had enough" stage for themselves. What is enough for me might not be the right time for another person. I just wish we could stop beating ourselves up for being human.
