Going No Contact is the process of cutting contact with an abuser or toxic person in order to protect yourself from their influence. It is often the only option for a survivor to really move on and heal from the abusive relationship. It is often a complex decision for the target, in part because it is so greatly misunderstood by outsiders. They often see the decision to go no contact as a form of revenge or punishment, which makes it even more difficult and complex for the target to implement this ultimate act of self-care.
