Feeling depressed or anxious can be so overwhelming. I want to help you feel better and be able to enjoy life. You are not alone and you deserve emotional support.

That is a complicated question to answer. Sometimes it is a cycle of violence that is learned. Sometimes it is a result of a scenario such as Kapman's Drama Triangle. The important thing to note is that it is never the victims fault.
An unhealthy relationship which usually gradually becomes fueled usually more on one side than the other but one will always suffer more, it is unstability and abusive to the one who ends up suffering.. if you feel youre in a situation like this you should try to seperate yourself from the situation as a means to see a more clarified perspective and find help.. whether that is for you both individually or together as a couple.. how ever know thatyou are not the only one and it is okay to feel like this as it is understandable and whatever role you may have in this relationship.. you can recieve help and support
