No, your girlfriend cannot just drop the issue of you hitting her. Domestic violence is a serious offense and should not be taken lightly. Even if she has chosen to forgive you and move forward in the relationship, it’s important that you both take steps to ensure that this type of behavior does not happen again.
Start by talking openly about what happened and how to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. It may be helpful to seek counseling together or speak with a trusted family member or friend for advice on how to handle difficult situations without resorting to violence. Additionally, it’s important for you to take responsibility for your actions and apologize sincerely for hurting her.
It is possible for couples who have experienced domestic violence to find healing and move forward in their relationship, but it requires hard work and dedication from both parties. Taking proactive steps now will help create a healthier environment in which both of you can feel safe and respected.
