I would like to share two blog articles from my friend, L. The first one is personal and precious to me, and I appreciate it SO much. L knew I was having a bad day — she could hear it in my voice. She readily admitted that she didn’t know what to do to help me, but the next morning, I found her post. THIS is what friendship is all about, and what survivors can do to help each other:
God bless her — she’s a TRUE friend, even if she is a Rep…. Never mind. 🙂
I found her other post to be quite profound, and it’s worth a look.
Be sure to watch the video L includes. It’s a Croatian ad campaign against domestic violence. (Not all abusers are psychopaths.) Many of us who have close encounters with psychopaths have found ourselves the victims of domestic violence (I did). Some of us fare worse and end up dead (that could have been me). But other psychopaths do not resort to physical abuse so they don’t tarnish their treasured facade. Regardless, survivors carry the unseen emotional scars. The emotional scars can’t necessarily be seen, but we know they are there. We struggle against them every step of the way. As you watch the video, notice how the physical batterings mirror and are a metaphor for the emotional scars that can’t be seen.
Thank you, L, for the gift of your friendship. For some reason, L doesn’t think she has anything interesting to say. I beg to strongly differ. Her bailiwick is abuse within the legal system, and for anyone caught up in that quagmire, she has a LOT to say. Psychopaths can and do exploit the legal system to carry out their intent to do harm. Please “like” and follow her posts if you find yourself exploited by a psychopath using the legal system for cover.
