A Mom, Wife, Sister, Daughter & Woman…Overcoming Domestic Abuse With God

Doubts

Can a tiger change his stripes?  If he’s Tiger Woods, I’d say no.  If he’s a man pretending to be a husband, I’d have to say no as well.  And that is where things are right now.  My husband is pretending to be a husband in the cycle of: abuse, remorse, anger, abuse again.  The hand-holding, the back-rubbing, the “how are you’s?” that we both know he doesn’t care what the answer is.  It’s heartbreaking, these periods of remorse, because I know they won’t last.  It is torture to be given a glimmer of what life could be – only to have it snatched back in to the reality of what really is.
