TRIGGER WARNING: ABUSE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
EVERYONE needs to know this. This is how nearly all abusive relationships play out, nearly all of the time. It’s very, very common and very important.
Bear in mind that “violent outbursts” can also mean mental/verbal abuse, shoving or holding someone down, throwing things at the person or threats.
Usually, this cycle worsens and worsens throughout the relationship. The violent episodes last longer and longer and the honeymoon phase gets shorter or may disappear completely, leaving the relationship bouncing back and forth between tension and explosions.
Please reblog if you think your readers could be helped by this?
I am reblogging this because if I had seen a chart like this in high school I could have recognized my abusive relationship for what it was. And this goes for almost every woman I have ever encountered that has been in an abusive relationship.
This is so true.
Essential information. Here’s my video explaining this and more about relationship violence. It’s called “When Love Gets Violent”. TW for a very intense 911 call at the beginning.
It’s really, really, important that you know and recognize these phases.
Don’t be like me and wish you had known before.
When my therapy sessions and real life collide. This is important.
