  2. I’m fortunate enough never to have experienced any abuse, and I always wondered why an abused person would continue to stay. This article gave me great insight into their reasoning and fears.

  3. powerful post and i’m sure helpful to those that are struggling w/ this issue. it is a far distant memory for me, but this all rang true.

    1. I’m glad it meant something, or more than something, to you Brenda. I remember when I first did it, being trained as a volunteer. Then to watch others go through it was enlightening. Thanks so much for commenting.

  4. Hi, Dr. Margaret

    Thanks for providing a list of resources that people can go to get helps and protection.

    This is one of the hardest question to have the answer because each family is different and evolving with many factors. Until there are transformation in the people and circumstances, the issues are still there.

    Your post makes us to remind ourselves not to put judgement on these and the persons in it.

    Thanks for insight
