As a victim, I used to fear abandonment more than abuse so I settled for reconciliation under any terms. Looking back, abusers seemed exclusively concerned about their pain over losing the relationship rather than in my pain being in it. I don’t think that anyone who demands forgiveness or trust deserves either one. — Christina Enevoldsen, The Rescued Soul: A Writing Journey for the Healing of Incest and Family Betrayal
