So very true!

I often wish I had pulled boxes off the shelves right out in public so that people would know that something was terribly wrong. I even thought at times how great it would be to stand up right in the middle of a sermon and challenge the pastor for the way that I was being treated.

“When abuse occurs the rules change.” I should have followed the new rules!

‘When the line has been crossed over into real abuse, the rules change and do a 180.’
