Hi Faye: You are not being rude and even if you were I would not take offense. That said, many people find comfort and solace in speaking with someone who shows empathy and concern instead of judgment and ridicule like you have experienced in the past. Time spent with a qualified counselor would not hurt you in any way and may help. I hope you find the companionship that you seek here, but it is still my opinion that you should seek qualified help. You have been emotionally abused for some time now and that takes a toll on even the strongest person. I wish you well in whatever you decide. It is not defeat to seek help when it is needed. You will find compassionate people on this website though. I hope that is enough. Robert is correct. You have little of no reason to blame yourself. It is often the tendency for the abused to feel this way and abusers will agree with your assessment, but do not blame yourself for someone else’s wrongdoing.
