Here is the scenario which a person or people are put in the situation which they are incapacity to prevent themselves from suffering from abusive actions. There is another person or people know their situation and attempt to help them. However, they claim that they are fine and they don't need help. The statement, however, is revealed to be against their will.
Such statement is often made in such situation: 1) if they declare that they are not fine and they need help, they would suffer from worse situation, mostly as a punishment. 2) The attempted helpers are considered by the victims as completely incapable to help them, incapable to help them timely or incapable to help them effectively.
