When Someone You Love is Abused

 

Chaos

Being a helpless onlooker and seeing someone being controlled, isolated, and abused causes such a frustration and deep ache within.  What can be done?  How can I help, when accusations against the abuser causes hurt and conflict with the abused?

Being a friend, and being there is my main goal.  Do I hide my feelings, or put it all on the table?  It’s all very complicated.  There’s many factors to consider.

It is said that karma is a wonderful thing.  I was once the abused with the concern going toward me, but I was stronger than my friend.  My karma is knowing that she has to make up her own mind, just as I had to make up mine.

I just need to be there for her, and that is where I’ll be.  I’m in it for the long run!
