Stop Victim Shaming; Hungry For Love

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.]

    Thank-you so much for sharing this, as a DV survivor of emotional abuse, anything that brings us women closer and helps with understanding is powerful.
