SC:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You found the strength you needed to get out of that abusive relationship, for you and for the sake of your daughter. Part of the reason victims stay with their abusers is that they get caught up in the cycle of violence, especially the honeymoon period, where the "seduction" is happening, the apologies, the so-called remorse and lovey-dovey stuff. THIS is the phase where victims fall into the trap, believing they are seeing the true character of the person coming out. But nothing is further from the truth. It's a phase and a game. It's NOT who the person really is, but the victims falls for the idea of what that person COULD be. As the honeymoon phase nears the end, things take an insidious turn: the abuser says, "I wouldn't have HAD to hurt you if you hadn't ___". And the victim further takes responsibility for the abuse. I'm SO happy that you realized what was REALLY going on, and got out. Stay strong SC, for both you and your daughter. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
