A friend of mine (a coworker) recently was nearly beaten to death by her boyfriend. He left her unconscious and covered in blood in a park and ran away. I’m writing this post just to raise awareness about violence against women. It is NOT okay. Since the local authorities are a piece of shit, this guy is NOT going to prison. The judge acquitted him because of “inconsistencies” in the police report. However, the reality of things is that my government is rotten and corrupt.
To anyone in an abusive relationship:
“But whether you stay or go, the critical decision you can make is to stop letting your partner distort the lens of your life, always forcing his way into the center of the picture. You deserve to have your life be about you; you are worth it.”
