24 Things You Shouldn't Say to Someone With an Abusive Partner

  1. Why don’t you go to the police? If you really wanted it to stop, you would.
  2. I’ve heard you say all this before, you just keep repeating yourself.
  3. He hasn’t hit you, so it’s probably just normal relationship stuff.
  4. Are you sure that’s actually what happened?
  5. What kind of parent do you think you are if you’re exposing your kids to this?
  6. Why haven’t you figured out how to help him stop his behavior?
  7. You really need to be stronger and figure this out.
  8. But he’s a cop, servicemember, firefighter, etc.
  9. But you just told me about the gift he got you, great thing he did for you, etc.
  10. I know what you’re going through, I’ve been with real jerks before, too.
  11. I told you I didn’t like him. I always had a bad feeling about him.
  12. I’m sure it will pass.
  13. Why don’t you just leave?
  14. You need to stop thinking about this so much and letting it define you.
  15. Are you sure you just aren’t being too sensitive?
  16. You aren’t protecting your kids if you stay.
  17. Just go to a shelter.
  18. If you don’t do something, I will.
  19. Maybe he just had a bad day.
  20. Are you sure you aren’t provoking the behavior?
  21. But he’s such a nice guy!
  22. He’s not really going to kill you.
  23. Why don’t you fight back?
  24. It can’t be that bad if you keep going back.
