My note to declare that I will not stop fighting to keep my kids safe and healthy!
"Abuse of women has been found to be the cause of roughly one-third of divorces among couples with children and one-half of divorces where custody is disputed. There are millions more women who have never been beaten but who live with repeated verbal assaults, humiliation, sexual coercion, and other forms of psychological abuse, often accompanied by economic exploitation. The differences between the verbally abusive man and the physical batterer are not as great as many people believe. Men in either category follow similar processes of change in overcoming their abusiveness-if they do change, which unfortunately is not common."-Lundy Bancroft, "Why Does He Do That? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men" I remember wishing, wanting my ex-husband to change. He never did. He still hasn't. It hurts. Everyday. Why couldn't he love me enough to stop hurting me. He still strikes out against me in different ways. He cannot see me, so he attempts to hurt me by using the voice of his lawyer and the courts. He knows my kids are my life, so he struggles to make good on his threats to take them from me. He promised he'd bankrupt us. When I would not agree to go bankrupt at his request, he simply stopped paying everything. My credit is already ruined. He tries to bring up in court and with court officials sexually explicit material he thinks will make me look like a bad mother. He never quits. He tries to make good on all those promises he made to me if I ever left him. I did leave him. And I am here to say to all of you...he may huff and puff all he wants, and the court system may not protect me or my children but this girl WILL NEVER QUIT!! I am NOT ALONE in this fight, and try as he might, I am STRONG and BRAVE and I will always be here to make sure my children are being treated well. I will never be quiet, and my voice will always echo and echo and echo!!! EVERYONE WILL KNOW THE TRUTH if I spend the rest of my life writing it, speaking it, etc... No woman should ever be anyone else's prisoner, afraid to live her life, afraid of her partner or ex-partner, worried that her children will be harmed or come to harm because of selfish neglect. My kids are IT for me! So this girl will fight and fight and fight to make sure they are looked after and watched over forever!!! If you kill me, I will haunt you...there is no alternative but to do the RIGHT THING!!! STOP ATTACKING YOUR PARTNER OR EX-PARTNER IN ANY AND ALL FORMS AND BE A GOOD FATHER! END OF STORY!!! Or be prepared to fight forever, because I am, and I will!!!
