Samantha Clarke this is a brilliant article and so true! I was involved in two marriages that were abusive, and experienced a mix of blatant, passive-aggressive, and hidden behaviors from my abusers. You’d think I would have learned from my first husband, but I went and repeated it with my second one.

I have so many stories to tell. I have written a few blogs about my history. Would you consider making me a writer? I would love to contribute to your publication.

Thank you again for this blog and publication. It’s relevant to many of us.
