Sadly abuse is all around us, we just might not recognize it. It is our job to help those who suffer. Thank you to my sweet courageous friend for letting me share her story.
As I sat there I listened to my friend sob as she confided in me with her challenges. She told me of her husband questioning her every move. There were times that she was cornered in her bedroom as her husband demeaned her, criticized and talked down to her. She felt like a slave in her own home, taking care of the kids, and having to provide all the sexual requests that were demanded. At the time she said she didn’t realize what was happening, she just assumed this was the way marriage was. Many time she felt worthless and at times she was told that as well.
