Being a helpless onlooker and seeing someone being controlled, isolated, and abused causes such a frustration and deep ache within. What can be done? How can I help, when accusations against the abuser causes hurt and conflict with the abused?
Being a friend, and being there is my main goal. Do I hide my feelings, or put it all on the table? It’s all very complicated. There’s many factors to consider.
It is said that karma is a wonderful thing. I was once the abused with the concern going toward me, but I was stronger than my friend. My karma is knowing that she has to make up her own mind, just as I had to make up mine.
I just need to be there for her, and that is where I’ll be. I’m in it for the long run!
