Everything you never wanted to know about what happens if you stay married to a passive aggressive man will probably be in this blog. Over three decades in a painful marriage and counting, and still searching for sanity, recovery, hope, and life beyond.
Things about me that I find relevant:
I’m a very basic, Mere Christianity (C.S. Lewis) kind of believer.
I love my kids and my fur kids.
I love books. I love the feel and smell of books. I love wandering through bookstores and libraries. My bookshelves are full when my closet is sparse.
I love most music, and I especially love music that makes my feet start moving, the kind you dance to while doing dishes or cleaning.
I’m an introvert. Not shy, but very introverted. This blog will likely be a constant battle between my need for privacy, and my desire for Truth. Truth matters.
My happy place is being barefoot with sun, sand, and water to swim in. I’m also pretty happy when I have something interesting to research, and the internet is like a library at the touch of the keyboard.
Several years ago, I sat quietly crying in a kind of fog of despair and stared at my computer monitor. I started to type words like pain, sad, lonely, depressed etc. into a search engine, and up popped the link to a verbal abuse site. I didn’t think it was the right fit (the verbal tag threw me off), but I clicked anyway, and the first window to understanding abuse cracked open and let a small shiver of light into my world.
I’d love to say that I had a life changing epiphany, but it’s been a long, slow crawl towards understanding and change. Here I am, still crawling, but more determined than ever.
If you found this blog because you’re searching for your own understanding about passive aggressive abuse, welcome. If you leave comments, I’ll do my best to respond, and there are many posters with invaluable perspective and stories to share. I hope you’ll be one of them!
Please remember that when we share our experiences or personal advice, that this should be a judgment free zone. Support, validation, sympathy, empathy, comfort, caring, encouragement and ideas are all priceless here. We have commonalities (passive aggressive abuse), yet our journeys and choices are uniquely individual. Here is a place we can help to build each other up faster than we’re being torn down.
