What do YOU think?

Margo Elliott
What do you do with a friend who can't seem to end an abusive relationship?

Michelle Foster

"Sparkle Plenty"

I would let them know that I would help in any way I could.

Rochelle Bales

"Sugar Pusher"

I'd just be very supportive. They won't leave 'til they're ready to leave.

Tasha Freeze

"Palm Reader"

I can't ask or tell another what to do. I can encourage and empower with love and understanding, so they find strength to walk away.

Sunny Applegate

"Sunny Bunny"

If you say you're "tired of hearing it" all you're doing is pushing her further into despair. Be supportive. ... She'll thank you for being her rock.

Leanne Wingrove

"Silver Goddess"

Lock them in a closet until they remember their self worth and scream uncle! I've been through this with a couple friends!

Jim Fain

"Herb Guy"

Tell them your concerns w/o preaching. Share your personal experience & be sure to do it all with care/love.

 Do everything you can to convince them to leave.
