When Love Goes WrongJune 17, 2012 No Comments
Dating. Courtship. Romance. Love. Marriage. Sounds like happily ever after like in the fairy tales little girls are fed in their tender, impressionable years.
Girl meets boy who courts her and tells her he loves her.
He promises to take care of her all the days of their lives.
Wide eyed and madly in love, they marry.. to live happily ever after?
The reality is not always so sweet.
For some women, it’s like the tale of Cinderella, in reverse.
Girl meets and marries the man of her dreams. Her prince charming.
Love is blind. She jumps in with both eyes wide shut.
He expects her to wait on him. Cook for him. Clean up after him.
He takes her earnings as his own. If she tries to stand up for herself, he intimidates her.
For some women, this is the ever after they end up in.
A woman never chooses to end up abused. To say it’s her own fault is wicked. Her self esteem is likely to be wrecked to the point, she no longer has the strength to stand up for herself.
Let’s face it. Men are physically bigger and stronger than women. Where can they go with their kids and be safe from their husbands who are likely track them down, or take the kids away when they go to school?
If she tries to stand up for herself, she could end up badly beaten up.. maybe to her death.
Why do we let this go on.
What are the resources available to you if you are abused by the one who was supposed to love, provide for and protect you?
Sisters, lets stand up together and help one another. Let’s not abandon our sisters in times of their distress.
