For a while I was hanging out with this one girl I know. She is older than me by about 3 years, but she was forced to stay in school for a couple of years after her immigration to the states. She graduated after the midterms in my high school. I am a junior.
Well, many women are like that, affectively dependent on an abusive partner. It's hard to understand them, because even after incredibly bad treatment, they'll still go for their guy. But you don't need to understand it to accept that it's a fact of life, and that you can do little about it.
Thanks a lot for your kind words.
I am sure that I won't be bitter, I was a little at first, but now I am not concerned. I was just unsure if my lack of concern, etc., was normal. I take it that it is, now, but please correct me if I am wrong.
