I've been dating this guy for over a year. Everything was great at first, but after a while, he changed. It started off with a little verbal abuse, and now he's starting to get more physical. His dad used to treat his mom like this. His mom said she's trying to work with him on it, but it doesn't seem like anything's happening. Is it time to call it quits, or should I be more patient?
Wow, this is a pretty sticky
situation you’re in, girl. I know you care about your boy, but the person who
matters most in this situation is you.
Whether it’s emotional or physical,
abusive relationships are not healthy or sustainable, so the first thing you
need to do is break things off with your guy. After that, if your emotions are a
little (or a lot) rocky it’s best to seek out help.
Being a victim of abuse is serious,
so explain the situation to a guidance counselor or a parent about what happened.
Then, if you’re concerned with your now ex-BF’s wellbeing, ask the adult you
spoke with to help him out in dealing with the problem.
The most important thing to remember
is that while this is something that happened between you and him, the entire
situation is much bigger than you can manage on your own.
