  1. Thanks for this — what an amazing resource! I’ve read a couple of the articles and will pass some of these links to my mom … really good information about how abusive relationships hook into the abused party.


    • Hi David,

      You’re welcome.

      I was in a domestic violence relationship and didn’t know it, many years ago. It took breaking up with him to realize that the only thing missing from the relationship for it to be domestic violence was the violence, which he did right before I broke up with him. The potential violence was always there, hanging in the air between us. He did everything else and it still surprising me how much it broke me down, how much it wounded me, how it only happened because I was an abuse survivor, and how when I think of having a relationship, I think of him and how he is everything that I don’t want.

      Good and healing thoughts to you and your mom.
