When I read of a woman who loves a man who treats her with disrespect and untruths and yet she stays with him it makes me wonder why she loves herself less than than she loves his abuse. She knows what’s going on and yet accepts it with a blind eye. Is it for security, sexual pleasure or just lack of self worth? Maybe all three but for her own reasons she does not leave. She does not escape her personal hell but instead endures that hell to live a life of what? Complacency, servitude or just survival?
