you sure got that right!
we survivors can understand this. unfortunately, most of our friends, family and closest supporters don't get it. maybe they are so conditioned by TV that they expect life to be like that.
our lives aren't just an episode - they're an epic!
PS - love the poem, as well as it's message.
"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
- Alan Cumming, "Not My Father's Son"
