Hi, all. I'm grateful for this site as it is good to see I'm not alone.
Relationships don't come easy to me because of the abuses of my childhood.
I have been tentatively starting a relationship with a woman I have known for years. It hasn't been easy as her ex-h was violently abusive. We are both treading lightly, but the pace has actually been good for me so as to get use to what to expect and feel in a relationship.
Her boss seems to be threatened by women as he is going beyond unreasonable with her and other women at work. Two others have approached HR with no success. He has said my friend “may need to start looking for another job.”
So she's doing that- 700 miles away. If she has to find a new job she wants to be near to her mother. I understand and if that's the way things go I wish her the best.
I just want to say two things:
1)I am tired of abusive authority males tearing my life to shreds.
2)It's interesting to feel pain without fear of survival. I feel horrible that she may be going, but if she does, I will still be here and will be able to go on. This is new to me.
Thanks for listening,
