How do you have this difficult conversation and maintain your friendship?
“I’ll keep what you said confidential.”
“The abuse isn’t your fault.”
“I’m so sorry that this is happening to you.”
“This must be so hard for you.”
“You don’t have to deal with this alone.
There are resources available for you.”
“I’m glad you told me. I’d like to help.”
“You deserve to be safe.”
“Are you a victim of domestic violence?”
“What was your part in the fight?”
“Why did you get involved with him?”
“You’re smart, why do you stay?”
“I can’t believe you are still with him!”
