    I look back and I am shocked at what I accepted

    in my life. The fun, charming guy I met was evil inside and hated women. With him, I felt insecure, ugly, scared, paralyzed, isolated, depressed - definitely NOT loved at protected and cherished. If you are dealing with this, please know you're not alone and it's not your...
