“The domestic violence is real. It’s real. How I lived to suffer it and go through it over and over again I do not understand.
“A lot of people have blamed me. A lot of people have said a lot of things. I have read a lot of things. I stayed back in my marriage, not because of my child but because I believe you cannot be abused or you cannot leave a child where there is abuse and you claim you are doing it for your child. No. I stayed because I was doing it for myself. I stayed because I loved my husband with all of my heart.
“I stayed because he had begged me to stay a couple of times. I stayed because I didn’t just want to give up. I didn’t want to give up on the marriage just like that. People change”

“I can imagine her state of mind and what she went through.
I for one would have said this same prayers 6 years ago with so much hate in my heart and can count many others who will equally be saying same prayers. But grace, mercy, and forgiveness surpass the pain of wickedness. I succumbed to God’s grace and strength.
Most often it’s unfathomable what some women put each other through.”
