    When No One Believes You

    Abusers often build themselves up as hero or savior figures in front of a survivor’s friends and family while simultaneously painting the survivor as someone who is troubled and needs help. Angelo says an abuser may go to their partner’s support system and tell them something like, “If this person [the survivor] comes to you and tells you that I hit them, I don’t know what’s the matter with them. They’re lying and I’m trying to get them to seek help. I don’t know where they’d be without me.” read more

Redirect their redirection by saying, “That’s not what I am talking about. Let’s stay focused on the real issue.” If they’re not interested, disengage and spend your energy on something more constructive – like not having a debate with someone who has the mental age of a toddler. read more

    Survivor: Kate

    She says he was nice, at first, but red flags popped up almost immediately, things that she pushed aside, hoping she could help him through. He had just gotten out of a relationship with a woman who was a heroin addict. She had left him with their two young children, a 2-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son. Kate says he didn’t seem all that attached to his children, or affectionate, something that struck her as troublesome. read more
