Being in a relationship that is unhealthy or the ending of a relationship can put you down into a place where it is really hard to know where to turn. It can be hard to imagine how to get away or how to move on. It can make you feel like you are trapped in a room where the lights are off and there is no way to find the door. This is such a scary place to be, especially when you feel like you are alone.
There are two very important things to know; the room does have a door and it takes only the faintest spark to be able to see enough to find it. There are people who want to help you see in that dark room and guide you towards the way out.
That door opening could be escaping the abuse or just moving on from the ending of the relationship, but no matter what the door looks like for you, you can get to it. Those people to help you find the door can take many shapes, it could be a trusted friend, a family member, a pastor, or a counselor.
