Re: Letter to my abusive husband
I read that the greatest loss we grieve is the loss of our dreams. We can be married to an abuser, but we grieve the what-might-have-been, or the good times that deteriorate into bad times.
I detest it when men call women the C-word. Filthy. Disrespectful. Not to mention demeaning beyond belief.
You love the what-could-have-been and (perhaps) the potential or idealization of what he might have been.
At this point, grieve your loss, put it in the proper perspective, and move on with your life.
A life that can include a man who shows you respect.
I refuse to make anyone a priority in my life who considers me nothing more than an option.
You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.
