recover from abuse without forgiving 

Forgiveness is neither the only nor necessarily the best way to move on from abuse or toxic relationships.
You can also cut the person out of your life and move on. It's a valid response, and pushing for forgiveness may just be another toxic move.

Sometimes, that may very well be the only option.

People, do not, never, not once, push someone to "forgive" someone else. You simply can't, and you probably don't know the whole picture.
