What we need to realize is abusive partners are people too. They have pain in their past that they don't know how to deal with.

Get them help so we can end the cycle!

I hate that most of these pins assume that it's only MEN who do this, as if women are incapable of being abusers. Women aren't angels and the female NPD will treat her "friends" the way she treats her lovers because she has no friends and no lovers only flying monkeys and tools
