Should I forgive and speak to my abusive ex boyfriend?

Anonymous
My boyfriend was emotionally and physically abusive. I was with him for almost a year, the police got involved and my mother wants me to forgive him and still continue to ‘keep him as a contact’ for the future. She is aware of the things that’s happened between my ex and I. I don’t think I should, I would probably avoid him for the rest of my life if I could.
