I am 53 years old and was in an abusive relationship physically and mentally.

I still feel it was my fault as there were many times that i would keep arguing with himas i was so frustrated and angry with him for swearing or hitting me but new i always in the end had to back down. Should i have just not said or done anything.

Hi always said i pushed buttons and pushed him to the point of him hitting me. He had no remorse but just said i did not no when to stop. I am having counselling to try and come to terms with things. He says i did not no how to treat a man and things changed alot when i started standing up to him and sometimes the only way i could do that was call him or text him when i was not with him in the day as then i new he could not hit me. My anger towards him made me shout at him, but he used to tell me off for that.

Good Job, Catherine! YOu did it! I told you you could do it...now, don't feel guilty!

As we told you last year, YOU were not the problem. Some men just cannot get out of the neanderthal thinking.

Stay strong, stay in counseling, make new friends and move forward from here! I'm so happy for you!
