So I have been thinking a lot lately about why we stay in abusive relationships and I have finally come to the end of mine. I have been hanging on to the sane abusive relationship for 12 years. Mistaking the fact that he accepts phone calls and sends money every once in awhile when I ask for love. That isn’t staying by me he has not changed he still drinks still says abusive things on the phone. I absolutely DO NOT want to go home to that nor do I want to hang onto that kind of a relationship because he is someone to talk to and ask for money when I am desperate. I would rather go without. I am making the change I have thought about for years starting today !!! NO MORE !!!!
