Fallout

The same question comes up every time.

“If it was so bad, why did you stay?”

And, every time, the same answers.

“Because I didn’t have the strength.”

“Because I didn’t know I could.”

“Because I loved them.”

That’s why I stayed.

  1. It’s so hard to get our heads around why someone stays…often they don’t feel they deserve better. It’s hard to help someone help themselves if they don’t believe! Powerful work!
