We, being we women who have have multiple abusive relationships, enter in the relationships thinking the man will change.
A person is who they are. Only a person who desires change, and personal growth, will change.
It is true that a man can make changes because of the love a good woman, but he has to want to change. If he doesn't want to change, all the love in the world will not register with him.
Here is another question, that we may not want to ask ourselves, which is: what is lacking in ourselves, what need correction or change in us, that we keep picking "broken"?
