I just had one of those really conflicting moments, I logged on to leave a new post to find that this site just hit the half a million point for hits to it. The busiest day ever was September 20th of this year. I was thrilled to see that I managed to generate a resource that so many have come to use, it ranks number one in google and other search engine for multiple keywords. I have worked hard so that others don’t ever feel totally alone. That was the happy feeling.
Then, the sad hit me like a brick, this only reinforced to me how many suffer in abuse and the aftermath. I get more emails now then ever before, ones that are sent to me directly rather than posted here. I try to answer the posts as soon as I can but it can be hard to keep up with them. The need for this site is what really made me sad. I know have men writing to me that want to stop being abusive, this is a sign of encouragement for me. For to really end all abuse, the abuser must want to change.
There was really no point to this post as many have a reason to be written, I just wanted to share the fact that because of your assistance, this has become the soft place to fall that I had always wanted it to be. So thank you for always being there to reach out and support the others that post here. I have been writing to some of you for years now and it makes me feel great when you reach out months and years later to tell me how well you are doing. That is what makes me return here day after day.
Love & Peace,
