Leaving an unhealthy relationship isn't easy, and sometimes it takes time to recognize you're in an abusive situation. So, reach out to your friends, talk to your loved ones, and listen if others warn you. Do what you can to protect yourself, because even if you might not feel like it right now, you're worth protecting.
