Abuse

This morning I found out that once again, a close friend of mine has gone back to her abusive boyfriend. I have seen him get physical with her, but the emotional abuse is far worse. I spent a day in court with her just a few months ago, stood in front of a judge with her so she could get a protection from abuse against him. The order was good for a year but now it means nothing because she once again went back to him.
I am beyond hurt, angry, confused and scared.
They have been together for 7 years and have a 5 year old daughter together.. She is only 22 years old herself. I am terrified for the day when their amazing daughter does something wrong and he hits her. I know it will happen, I just don’t know when.
