Breaking up from a rеlаtіоnѕhір is difficult. Usually, the longer that you are together, the more difficult it is to break up. Brеаk uрѕ аrе much more раіnful when you’ve been together for say, 3 уеаrs rather thаn 3 mоnths, because your partner is now a large part of your life. Mоѕt rеlаtіоnѕhірѕ аrе wоrth ѕаvіng. Sоmе rеlаtіоnѕhірѕ аrе јuѕt tоо dіѕаѕtrоuѕ tо ѕаvе. If уоu аrе іn аn аbuѕіvе rеlаtіоnѕhір, іt іѕ bеttеr tо јuѕt lеt it gо rаthеr thаn try to make it work because often it won’t work and can’t work. Let it go if it cant be fixed.

The following story of domestic violence is one that demonstrates what can happen when the desire to control is taken to the extreme. It is not an unusual situation. Women around the world are murdered every day by their spouse who has gone mad in the process of wanting to control her every move. It is a very sad story, but it makes a very worthwhile and valid point, even though it is not an Australian story, but rather, is a story of a woman in America. It’s a story to remind you of the importance of getting out safely.
Well I haven’t posted any of my own writings here for a while now because I’ve been writing a novel for teenage girls. I’m almost finished editing and formatting it, and shortly it will go on sale. I’ve written it so that teen readers can get lost in the story line and relate to the experiences of the heroine when they are growing up in a dysfunctional home where there is violence and verbal abuse, and where the effects of that flow over into other areas of their lives. Here’s a bit about the first novel in the series of seven:
The Bravehearts of Belgrave High

Especially if you feel you are different from other people, left wondering desperately where you fit in. The Chronicles explore these experiences as they follow the journey of Viviane, our teenage heroine. Continue reading →
