Can we please stop this mentality that if you’re being abused you should just ‘leave and get help’. It is never as simple as that. If you’re a minor, you rely on your parents (assuming they are the abusers) for home and food and school and funding. Most of the time, it’s genuinely not worth it to leave when you can stick it out. Leaving home is difficult and may not even work out. You’ll either land up in the foster system (which can be extremely traumatising) or sent straight back home, only to a more provoked abuser. If it’s not one of the two, you could end up homeless and potentially never get the school results you need to get a job. Most of the time, you’re on a thin line trying to weigh up how bad your situation is. Unless your situation is severe enough to make these alternatives seem better for you, it’s simply not a realistic or helpful mentality, I’m sorry to say.
Solutions to abuse are never as simple as just ‘leaving’. Please remember that.
