That's sad to hear, Lee, but I'm so glad you planted the seed that others see and do care. So many victims and survivors are seen and revictimized by being ignored, and you didn't do that. You're awesome!

If all he knows is what he does, then perpetuating DV seems rational in his mind, as does the cutting. I hope your seed grows and he strengthens throughout the next few years and seeks out someone he trusts to get help.

I wish my guy had had an educator like you in his life.
