Asking a woman who has been trapped by a psychopath is like asking a person why she has been caught in a cult. If I had the psychological capacity to understand the process of mental manipulation and gradual control, you’d think I wouldn’t have fallen into the trap of a toxic relationship.
I know how difficult it is to have to explain and justify oneself in front of incredulous people. Even well-meaning people hurt with their questions I find. It’s as if only a woman who has also been through hell could understand. So today I want to be that woman for you my friend my sister.
