You really don’t need to read what that woman wrote Tamyka Bell, but I think it is important that we’ve said something that can be found close to it, to counter it for others who may come across it.
People who haven’t been bullied in their marriages or relationships shouldn’t think that it doesn’t occur, or that it’s too rare to matter. I’m happy for them and I respect their personal truth.
The truth of our lives should be respected too, and the fact that you can’t see everything from the outside looking in. I mean, at least three of us have written already, in just a few hours, to say we didn’t break up because we got tired of our partner or were just restless. We did it because we were being mistreated. That doesn’t say rare to me.
