The Strength that I Somehow Possessed
The women I worked with leaving abusive relationships, were some of the strongest women I've ever met. I hear lots of people still say that women "just need to leave" without understanding the emotional abuse that ever comes before any physical abuse. And in spite of being daily subjected to put downs, threats, crazy making behavior, over 80% of the women I worked with made the leap to freedom. It wasn't easy, either leaving or the after. Their strength and the strength of the women who supported them helped them make a new and better life.
