It Only Takes One Time

It only takes one time

It only takes one time for an abuser to hit you. It only takes one time for an abuser to verbally abuse you. It only takes one time for an abuser to slap, stab or shoot you. Don’t talk yourself into” Oh this is the only time it has happened. It won’t happen again.” Get out while you can or it may be too late. Sometimes the abuse can be mental and those scars do not heal easily It could take years for them to go away. If children are involved, remember they understand everything but don’t compute it the way an adult would. It is very scary for a child to not know what is going on.
