Trauma bonding

Trauma bonding creates powerful, unhealthy attachments to another who causes you harm.

It occurs in conditions where an individual is under threat psychologically or physically, and they perceive that their survival is dependent on their abuser. This could be due to isolation, and/or inability to escape from the situation. In addition to these circumstances, the victim also perceives that the abuser is intermittently kind towards them.
