Your parents were—ARE—very smart. They protected you and kept you safe from harm. I applaud and commend them for what they did for you. And your stepfather was so right. If they hadn't intervened, eventually JC would very likely have physically assaulted you. You see, the two of you were still in the first phase of the cycle of violence: the "tension phase", where emotional assault is happening. Isolation. Constant monitoring. Belittling. Etc. It was just a matter of time before the violence escalated. I'm delighted he is no longer in your life because you deserve so much better. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
