#5 – Execute The Plan
Fear of the unknown, fear of being found, and the fear of not being able to survive on your own with your children are major factors in why women and men stay in abusive relationships. Battered women and men are told on a daily basis how worthless they are which makes leaving even more difficult. Once you have made up your mind that leaving is the only option for you and your children it is important to follow the steps, reach out for help, and understand that you are not alone in this battle. Your local battered women’s shelter will be able to assist you and your children in securing employment and finding a safe environment for you and your children to start new.
