It didn’t make sense why it felt like being in a dungeon. It seemed like an internal pain with no visible injury or apparent reason. There were no chains yet she felt shackled. Lola was puzzled by her confusing thoughts, especially when she had moved on from an abusive relationship and in many ways, to a better life. The challenge, she noted, was the fumes of the past still lingered. Could any one not tell she was still trapped? Incessant unreasonable demands ftom an ended relationship, that made her feel pressured to respond against her best judgements? Confusing thoughts on how best to keep herself and her children safe? Safety, not just from physical harm but emotional abuse.
Domestic abuse is not just “fighting”. Deprivation of freedom in any way, a possessive spouse, controlling parent, unhealthy primitive cultural values, a domineering/controlling person, are some of the factors that result in an entrapping relationship where freedom is denied in various ways.
