Penny felt embarassed, stupid, and emotional pain during her abusive experience. She found out she was being abused when she “felt something was not right”, lost, and unloved (among other things).
I went back to this relationship 3 times, I was 29 when I first met her and I was 52 when I left for good. I felt that I could change her - but that didn’t happen. She and her son would always put me down about what I felt and said, and do the same to my son as well.
I would always buy her gifts, as she would me, but she would say ”what is yours is mine and what is mine is mine”. Her gifts she gave me were always hers as well.
They were control freaks and would get in your face if you didn’t agree with them. They both have high IQs, so I put my trust in them. … That would hurt me seeing my child hurting and he later ran away. When he came back 2 weeks later she yelled at him and hit him.
I felt like there was nothing I could do to stop it. [continued]
