Tonight

...Jordan and I sit alone, tonight...in a shelter...for battered women...I post this because the kind of judgment that gets passed on me? Was why am I living like this, at this stage in my life?
Women who have been abused, raped, taken advantage of, are supposed to break the cycle of abuse, get to a safe place and get help...so I did...
But it is inconvenient, embarrassing and frankly, not well tolerated...but, I did what I was supposed to do, to not be hurt anymore...
So who really can judge?
Would you want your daughter, sister or mother to be hurt, damaged and devastated, just to save face?
Nope...
The Bible says 7 times a man falls, and 7 times he gets up again...
It seems funny to me, that the ones who judge the most, are the same ones who ask why abused women don't leave...see the two edged sword of it all?
Some women don't leave abusive situations, because mean spirited people judge them, and make things harder for them...so, please shut up...seriously, unless you have walked even 10 ten steps in these shoes...
