Strong reactions - especially anger - is often the cover story for an individual's own pain. I would guess the person you spoke with also had a history of abuse in their past they were keeping firmly under lock & key. The dissappointment that they had been drawn to and fell in love with someone who had been/was an abuser likely fed their emotional tirade. And also might have been a pattern as we often seek to heal our own childhood wounds by seeking out and forming those very same relationships as adults. It's never about us or our words - it's always about them. A truly insightful piece - Thank you so much for sharing. Many blessing Dear Sarah. <3
