Read all the points mentioned in this Abuse Cycle─it’s different for each state like domestic abuse, psychopathy or narcissism─and then mentally revise your experiences by using these ideas. You will notice that you will feel less confused and more in control after you have realized that you are being abused. You will also notice that you will stop feeling ashamed or guilty of things that you did not quite do. Get help immediately by contacting the correct authorities because you might get thoroughly brainwashed if you decided not to take timely action. And, I request immediate intervention in one form or another because living with abuse can create chronic illnesses. When you sleep after reviewing this cycle, think back to your most precious possession like a friend or family member. That’s the only way of safely getting out of the abusive situation you are currently in.
