If you are being abused by any person, be it financially, psychologically, emotionally, physically, or spiritually, etc.. more than 1 time; it will not stop, it will only grow and escalate. Distance yourself as quickly as possible from such a person. You do not need to be a victim, or believe their very untrue, if any, apologies.

Coming from my own understanding of experiences of myself and those I have been close to. Without intervention, mediation, and an actual willingness to apply change, the abuser will not, I repeat, will not, treat you any better with time. They have to want the change themselves. You can not do it for them, and it is not your fault. I know it is hard to leave if you have any love at all for them, but is the love really worth your own destruction?
