"It’s crazy, because I was born in 1981 and I’m alive and well in 2014 — it’s not that I’m conscientiously not doing contemporary stuff. […] They just don’t tend to come my way at the moment. I’m taking it as a compliment one way or another, but it’s very much an ambition of mine to wear jeans."

“ I fell in love with books. Some people find beauty in music, some in painting, some in landscape, but I find it in words. By beauty, I mean the feeling you have suddenly glimpsed another world, or looked into a portal that reveals a kind of magic or romance out of which the world has been constructed, a feeling there is something more than the mundane, and a reason for our plodding. ”

Key points to remember:

  • Abuse grows from attitudes and values, not feelings. The roots are ownership, the trunk is entitlement, and the branches are control.
  • Abuse and respect are opposites. Abusers cannot change unless they overcome their core disrespect toward their partners.
  • Abusers are far more conscious of what they are doing than they appear to be. However, even their less-conscious behaviors are driven by their core attitudes.
  • Abusers are unwilling to be nonabusive, not unable. They do not want to give up power and control.
  • You are not crazy. Trust your perceptions of how your abusive partner treats you and thinks about you.
