I GOT OUT ALIVE

I GOT OUT ALIVE: "Why did you stay?" It's my least favorite question. No matter how nicely someone askes me, with their tilted head and sad eyes, it still sounds derogatory. It's my fault.
Yes I stayed, more times than I can count. I stayed after each bruise, after each horrible insult and his cheating and lying and stealing and manipulating . Yes I stayed
Do you want to hear "because I'm an idiot"? "because I looooved him"?
Why not ask "How did you get out?" instead
Because I got out
And that should matter more
