I have been on hiatus for quit some time. In 2 years i have gotten out of an abusive relationship, got a job, bought a car, met a wonderful man.... most importantly, i regained the confidence that has been missing for so long. I now have an amazing soulmate, cute cape cod, HAPPY son, and my photos are selling!! Currently the biggest have been 4ft by 6ft, although i had to sell it unframed Luckily my boss loves my work, and lets me hang it on the walls at the store. Last yr was full of art festivals, and i can't wait for the season to kick in this yr! I've missed you guys, and it's good to be back. as me. happy and in love with the world around me and the life i live <3
If you or someone you know is subjected to verbal abuse, emotional torment, infidelity, and demeaning,
controlling behavior at the hands of the person who "loves you" - GET.OUT. esp if there are children involved. All the things listed above are abuse, even if it isn't physical. No one ideally wants to raise a child
in a split home
, but i assure you the damage of a child witnessing this behavior and falling victim themselves eventually, is far worse than dealing with split parents. trust your gut, realize your self worth, and leave.
