Soap box - Get out! Get out! Get out!
The ongoing Oscar Pistorius muder trial is a perfect example of what should not be happening in relationships. I have been giving unsolicited advice to anybody who's listening. My poor daughter especially, and she doesn't even need it! Sorry!
I still hear from my daughter that her fellow students and friends are staying in relationships that are degrading and unhappy. The girls keep on going back to their boyfriends who make them unhappy and make them feel less worthy!
My only advice is to walk away as soon as possible!
(I have personal experience - a previous life, a very very long time ago - and realised only afterwards that I should have seen the warning signs!)
You should not stay in a relationship where you are:
(Even if only for 10% of the time...)
- Feeling unsafe or scared.
- Being made to feel less worthy.
- Guns are recklessly used.
- Extreme jealousy.
- Told what to wear and what to say and how to behave.
- Not treated like a lady!
I wish all the girls to know that it is up to them to change the situation.
You have the power to stop it by not accepting bad behaviour, and by getting out!
