Default abuse

After 18 years of abuse I am out. This is a new life for me...I should be happy....I should be singing and dancing. I should be ...but I am not. I still feel he is the winner. He will have this power over my thoughts until I decide to change it. I have been in counseling for 8 months and it is helping.

I stayed for all the reasons Jeff had listed….kids, money, and lack of support from family. My mother told me once that I should try not to make him angry.

The police finally removed him and he has never returned to the house.
I still find myself wondering what he would do when I am making decisions for myself.

Someday I will be free. I know I will be divorced soon and I still feel very married.
