If you’re single (and especially if you’re a single parent), don’t worry if you need a boost too!
Along the way, if you need advice, feel free to contact us. And don’t forget, the relationship you can always boost up is the one you have with yourself!
Relationships that are not healthy are based on power and control, not equality and respect.
Consider leaving your partner before the abuse gets worse.
Whether you decide to leave or stay, make sure to use our safety planning tips to stay safe.
On the other hand, when a woman acknowledges him for all the things he’s doing well, he will almost certainly want to deepen the relationship and stay in it.
