This week was very hard and eye opening. It is crazy to think how easy and common it is for someone my age to be in a violent or abusive relationship. For my growing up my father was very aggressive and verbally abusive towards my mother, and even physical a couple of times. Me being the youngest I didn't get the worst of it. Actually by the time I was older my dad had cooled down a lot so I didn't ever see the worst of it. But listening to everyone's stories was an extremely eye opener for me and my mothers point of view. My mom ended up leaving my father after 21 years and thrived. But this weeks class was really an eye opener for me on what it was like for my mom and how she must have felt!
