Is this an abusive relationship?
Everyone has arguments, and everyone disagrees with their partners, family members and others close to them from time to time. And we all do things at times that we regret, and which cause unhappiness to those we care about. But if this begins to form a consistent pattern, then it is an indication of domestic violence and abuse.
Sometimes it can be difficult to recognise that you’re in an abusive relationship. Even if you do realise that things are wrong, you may think that you are partly to blame for what is happening. You need to remember that you haven’t done anything wrong, and that there are people who can help you to stay safe and end the abuse.
