“I know this relationship isn’t good for me, but I’d rather have this than be alone.” 

“I would rather have a bad relationship with my dad than no relationship with my dad.” 

“I’d rather have a mean boyfriend than no boyfriend.” 

Actual words that have come out of the mouths of three actual women I know.

How did they learn this?  What have they seen, what have they experienced?  What would make a woman prefer bad to nothing?

Oh Jesus, heal our wounded souls.
