    S3, E10: How Do You Feel When You Leave an Abusive Relationship?

    S3, E10: How Do You Feel When You Leave an Abusive Relationship?

    This is a question we do not address enough.  I have never been asked this.  The survivors I have interacted with have never been asked.

    I think people assume that once a survivor leaves, they feel relieved, happy, joyous…

    Partly, yes.  But in reality, its so much more complicated.
