Relating to Relationship Violence Stories

Just to let people know that my comments to relationship violence story contributors are sincere/genuine: 
Sadly, I spent a good part of my morning reading all your stories and made a comment to a few. These are my genuine and true feelings of Men who abuse in a relationship. All my relationships were based on mutual love and respect for each other. I was lucky, they were Lucky. I was in my teens when I had my first ever relationship. Love entered into it as we talked and shared of understanding of each other. All my relationships were built from the outset on RESPECT. Once we acknowledged that was there then we shared, knowing we would not offend or hurt the other in any way.


I am single. At sixty two I've been blessed with sharing with a small number in relationships. That is why I cringe and get quite upset when I hear of violence in a relationship, including domestic violence in a home. Those who abuse children are totally in a different level of being human and being animal.

I am not sure if this will be accepted, but I wanted those I made comments to to know that they were my real heart feelings for them.

A Video Reading by Darlene BarriereNote from Darlene: The volume of contributor submissions has now made it impossible for me to comment personally (especially in great detail) on each and every contribution. If I haven't left you a comment or one that is in-depth, please do not take my lack of a personal response as a slight, or as a statement that your story is somehow unworthy of my time. Nothing, and I do mean nothing, could be further from the truth. If there was a way for me to respond to all of you at length, I would.
