“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.
