Our expert says:
Its very impotant to work with a therapist both to recover from these awful experiences, and to prepare to be open to pleasant relationships, while never opening yourself to abuse again. Its a nice feature of chaacter to give other people a chance to change, but only if there is a realistic chance of them wanting to change and being capable of doing so, and not if you wait a year of more for the miracle to occur.
You are always better off alone than with an abuser. Let go of this guy before the abuse gets worse. Don't be so scared to be alone, and then you won't be so desperate as to give any other abuser the chance. See a counsellor / therapist ( POWA or some similar group could recommend someone suitable, as could FAMSA ) and free yourself from this bad habit of enabling abusers, and rather be open to sustaining relationships
