I Wonder Why I Stayed
I was worthless, stupid and I could never survive without him. I was incompetent as a mother. Everything I ever did was wrong and I heard it everyday. Nothing was ever good enough no matter how hard I tried and I gave it my all. Past experience has shown me how intelligent I am but why did I allow this man to break me down to nothing?
I was not allowed to have friends, isolated from my family and persecuted because of people we saw in passing. I lived in fear. I always sensed when I was going to be hit and it started with emotional and verbal abuse.
I'm so happy to be free, independent, confident and happy. I am praying the divorce will be over soon. Its been over a year in court. He wants to manipulate the judicial system as he's always done me.
