I don't know what you can do for your friends or family members in this kind of boat. They have to realize for themselves that they are not going to be someone else's doormat or punching bag.

I think woman feel pressure to be with someone. Whether they are worthy or not. All you can do is be there for her and keep it honest.

I have to say that's the hardest role to play as a friend. You HATE the person they are with, yet if you open your big yapper, the friend thinks you are being a bad friend (or judgemental, unsupportive, jealous, etc) for not liking their asshole boyfriend. However, when they are on a break, they have no problems when you agree with them about how crappy he is. But when they get back together, you better start liking the guy again too. UGH!
You can't force someone to see it- they have to open their eyes and see it for themselves. As hard as that is, you can't make people move on. You just have to hope and pray that they finally do.
In the meantime, just be the best friend that you can be.
