Domestic abusers who portray themselves as sensitive, sweet, and a victim of others are among the most deceptive and destructive.
My ex sang this song to me often in front of the children. I have been divorced for 24 years. I was married for 26. Yet I too suffered from PTSD as a result. It has taken me many years to realize I was abused, thus taken me longer to heal, but I am so very joyous to be free. I am so glad I was finally willing to face the abuse and let healing come!
You know as a guy on the internet going through a victims of abuse scheme with my psychologist after being recommended to go there by my therapist. I find it disheartening that this article I’ve found looking for support is gendered so specifically and it really just drives home how little support men who suffer this form of abuse have. Everything I’ve read in this article rings true for me but from the other side. I think it’s maybe a “they” problem instead of a he she problem.
