...but eventually there has to be something inside of us that says
...The reality is, living life on our own is hard, especially for those of us that have children. As for me and my two children? Well, the difficulty of living on our own was compounded because my son was disabled.
So, it is darned hard to start over...especially without help, resources, and emotional support...but the alternative is worse...because whether a man is pre-battery...a full blown abuser...a druggie...or any other kind of addict...well, the thing is that you don't know that today he might just snap and your life could be over.
...no matter how hard it is...it is always better to get out, and be safe, than to stay...and the best piece of advice I ever got was not to tell my abuser I was leaving...because if they know, they hurt.
Let me know how you are doing.
