It is clear from this article that you have not been abused and actually feared for your life, locked in a car, going 80 miles an hour over ice in a side street in a busy city. Having your partner scream at you and try to kill you simply because you quietly asked to "be taken home" since they were in a bad mood.

It is super difficult to have compassion for someone who does this kind of thing to you. And it is the partners who have compassion and forgive again and again that generally end up dead.

Most women who get in relationships with abusers have a high tolerance for bad behavior and a loving and forgiving nature. That's why they're targeted in the first place. But these things become liabilities when your life is at stake.
