I will admit, up until recently, I was someone who could never fathom why anyone would stay in an abusive relationship. It just didn’t make sense to me.
Until I started seeing all of the Facebook posts in my newsfeed about the victim shaming that is going on with the Ghomeshi trial.
This is where I stumbled upon some very thought provoking comments from a member of a women’s networking group that I also belong to. Her comments touched me so deeply and provided me with such a deeper understanding of this ‘victim mentality’ that I had to ask her if she would share.
I am so grateful that she took the time to share her story as these realities cannot be ignored. I am honoured to have such an amazing contributor as a part of this issue.
[oh my: that’s haute.]
