I dated a man who was very abusive and controlling. I did everything to make him happy, but it was never enough. It wasn’t the physical that broke me down day after day. It was the mental and emotional abuse that took my spirit. When I did leave it broke my heart because I truly thought I loved this sociopath. I know I got off lucky because I am stronger & wiser than before. But my heart breaks for the millions of my fellow women struggling with this daily. All I can say is it has to be you. YOU have to be willing and strong enough and smart enough to walk away. you will keep making excuses no matter what anyone tells you no matter what happens even if you’re in the hospital and almost dead you will keep making excuses for this man until you finally wise up get the strength to say enough is enough and realize that you’re worth more than what you’re getting you have to do treat yourself better than what you have been putting up with. You deserve to be treated like you’re worth it.
