Loved No More
Tricia has again written the perfect post. Mentions her book, composes a moving poem and serves up a public service message! I’ve known parents who encouraged their sons and daughters to stay in bad marriages because she was a good wife or he was a good provider, or they were good parents. I wonder if they asked their children how they treated their spouse? Reblogging this one too.
My newest poem addresses unhealthy relationships and emotional abuse. When I wrote The Fifth Circle, I delved into different types of abuse, including physical and sexual. The book also explored the unhealthy relationship between the two main characters and showed the gradual progression of abuse. Emotional abuse does not always evolve into physical abuse, but it can be just as harmful. Manipulation, controlling behaviors, belittling comments… these are indications that you might be in an abusive or unhealthy relationship.
Some of you might be able to relate to this poem, even if you haven’t been in an abusive relationship. There are times we might feel unhappy with a spouse or partner, unappreciated, even unloved. Relationships can be difficult. If you think you might be in an abusive relationship, seek help. (Resources are listed below the poem)
