It is Valentine’s Day. I’ve been listening to the radio on and off all day. The stories are all light and fluffy. The hosts chatter on about love and romance as if this were everyone’s experience. But we know that for lot’s of women love hurts and Valentine’s Day is just one more reminder of that.
I remember when I was in an abusive relationship, standing in the card shop reading every card, trying to fine one that I could sign with sincerity. There were none. Valentine’s day, like our wedding anniversary, was just one more reminder that things were not the way I longed for them to be.
If you are reading this blog and you are in a hurtful relationship, know that you are not alone.
