You said thank you got extra yeah he's aimed at them this is had been going on for fourteen years. Yeah. Now. Hot why is that having just a simple just a simple question but is is a simple question but is not so simple. Why did use day that long. I don't know people have different. Different reasons for spam though which are reasons. My reformed. One was turned Ali because it's in excellent Italian born we don't want bad. I mean that my ex husband has suffered from abandoning in certain areas in and ample warning could be that warming. Who would have been good at being. In his life and sell our conduct such planned to expect a lot of things aren't you trying to stay in China okay will. Campbell and we did cal and a quick sample ballot rejected throughout my throughout our marriage in legal right when this happened. It will feel no. I'm gonna go to counseling it would not until later bit with little day. Add both made their they had virtual expert to tell. But it was because I actually didn't wanna be another woman at a being intent. On because that needed that something that he suffered through his childhood. And so I was trying to get out you know really tried so hard to speak out Ian down. To actually make it work place you know. Without you know without getting killed while we're actually not your own home. Because Alec so they. Mean and trying to hold that. In only in trying to keep a lot of secrets and trying to say aides are. You know but it would really not helping you with more hindering helped. And I am sure the affected him on your children was it even more far reaching. It absolutely possibly possibly. To the effects that you have not seen it. Because of you know be out in this situation. So. Absolutely and kids are in I immediately get counseling you know Chordiant. And even though they still go and that was kind of car for the end on especially like you know my my girl's kind of carpet and open up if someone that would DeLeon don't. You know I'm wiping that. Kind of pray for the psyche the war we've kind of throughout the collapse and people that can hold extra. You know we need to come accountability partners we need some people getting a Lily Lily. Weak moment or where I'd be even know how true. Communicate that he looked around you would think that would help me you know in the area because that would something that we really had to come out. Was will you then how. Kept quiet or you're being quiet for so long it. It's hard Alcatel. And it's hard to express and tell I'm thankful. That I got to a place where racket literally tore my heart out aka literally tore my pain out. Active share my pain healing for not paying me and inform my children as well. And that they can now you know they opened at me and they can they Mara can have a heart heart that can come annually to clear crashing. You know and you know got to cut open it up act can be. Basically wore a uniform my children killing that they are taking share with big this year into the ground as well as people can't. It was definitely a journey and put them on Beale. You don't feel counseling skills surrounding the people in guilt surrounding him you know would love in theory it can trick you they need because I reckon that they even being at any specific skills so crucial. For adulthood. You know in making sure that the white balloons and let backing important condemned him. I mean absolutely and and and being more important is that so they don't grow up thinking that you know this is that normal behavior. 22 goals through domestic violence. Absolutely absolutely. So what are you saying that. Idea I'd imagine yeah now you use you know you use say that you know facing guy was strong and he was able in all the chaos. To hear the voice of you know that is very difficult to do especially when you are surrounded by chaos when you're going through difficult situations well so what would you say to those women who were going through this situation who may not have that close relationship with god. That you haven't and and may not be able to hear him speak to them you know in the situation. Yes and outlook until we know that not all of the moment we're actually here. It will be aware for a moment I couldn't in our screen and that would cry. That would give him clapping in outs would not know what do you look at ilk. What I always. And not you know not making Ali the majority of the current it would just be someone who would leaned unleashing yet xmas. Just good to yield like a say hey I'm really welcome back to our random crop is. In wanted to share something I would even get moment like they. An end. That was what kind of sustained me get worn out moment I'll always hold strong publishing kicking myself. It thing and I'll write it together because. That's not reality. You know it'll work. You know indulge moment yeah it would always somebody could be my way or much idle lock in the world and it didn't give it can get hurt. Yes and now we're going to be all right. In what at all other women chew up aren't showing they have before. Because completely may not have the strength to that moment a book about the other left hand that you had in the war in how well.

You know they couldn't really don't want people can know what we're really deal with because her. And they put us on the cattle sold. And I think it would yarn that. You know where sometimes not human and LL culture things but we didn't struggle we struggle and a lot of whom we're struggled silently. Because it was great to tell anybody about what we're going to respect not afraid that you won't be ashamed that you walk in the Bay Area. Big you'll come out of it and in most importantly. They add. Now your gonna be okay because from currently can step and we think this is going to be come visit our normal. Given what we know now we learn how to operate in dysfunction. It's not the right way.
