Re: one mans power to destroy
hmm...this is a hard thing to talk about, it must be. Me being a man (who has never abused a woman) I can honestly say I cant truly relate.
I cant tell you what to do, but one thing women fall into many many times is the feeling of helplessness and being stuck in a situation. Your not helpless or stuck in anything. There is help out there and all you need to do is leave him. Just leave.
If he is violent and threatening I can understand how this may cause fear, because we all know the police wont do much unless something has ALREADY happened. So, if this is the case, talk with the police and see what you can do.
Honestly, just leave. Nothing positive will come from staying with him. If hes as bad as you say, leave. Thats the best advice I can give.
