Any woman who grew up in the 60’s probably knows a ton of people like this; it’s just how people rolled back then.
I’ve had a lifetime of therapy undoing that mess, but it’s all good. Shockingly, I seem to be much stronger than the people who I endured such behavior from.
But that’s a scary thought in itself. Because if this coward is tougher than them, that’s not saying much!
Here’s hoping this pattern isn’t part of your history. And if it is, that you’ve overcome too!
