Tonight I'm answering a question from Heather who posted it in a thread in our Women Making Marriages Work (WMMW) FB Group.
This is her question: "How about advice on healing from an emotionally and mentally abusive (and neglectful) marriage? For 8 years I played the part of a good wife as best I could and went out of my way to do far more than anyone I knew did for their husbands or partners. I worked until I was in desperate pain and then kept going so I wouldn't disappoint him. (Serious health issues here) He has changed, like actual real change, but it just feels like he hurt me too deeply for too long and just killed the possibility of ever loving him again. And how can I even try without the fear of him turning back into the person he was?"
Anyone in pain in their relationship that doesn't know how to move forward needs to listen to this.
