I disagreed with my ex-husband one time, and he gave me a black eye. That was the first and last I have ever gotten.
Every man I had a relationship with controlled me with angry threats if I didn’t do what he expected.
My emotions, finances, clothing, thoughts, and beliefs under his control, which was almost identical to my childhood.
They did not allow me freedom of choice either.
Too needy, insecure, frightened and intimidated to stand up for myself, I tucked my chin and did what they told me to do.
Today, I know I am forever damaged, but I conquer their revolting abuse daily and keep moving forward.
