THIS. I work with domestic violence victims and often get calls from concerned loved ones who want us to charge in and rescue the abused person. But that’s not how it works. People need to want help before help will actually be effective. It’s a very controversial idea because it makes people so uncomfortable to think that saviors don’t actually exist.

Thank you for sharing this story with us.
