Some time back, a member of our See the Triumph community, who wishes to remain anonymous, shared with us the poem below, which she wrote. On writing this poem, she said, "For years I had been desperately trying to understand my daughter's situation and to help her. She found and shared two books with me, Why Does He Do That? by Lundy Bancroft and To Be An Anchor in the Storm by Susan Brewster. They were a profound read for both of us. Inspired by the latter, I woke up in the middle of the night, and these words poured out."
These words capture so beautifully the best type of support that people can offer to someone they love who is in an abusive relationship. We are so thankful to the author for sharing this with us, and allowing us to share it with you!
