"Domestic abuse falls into a common pattern or cycle of violence. Your abuser’s apologies and loving gestures in between episodes of abuse can make it difficult to leave. He may make you believe that you are the only person who can help him, that things will be different this time, and that he truly loves you. However, the dangers of staying are very real."
