Chosen Quote: Do Victims of Abuse Fully Recover?

"I won't lie to the fact that badly abused women (or men) never get over the side effects of abuse 100%, but, if they seek counseling and are determined to have a better life their future is greatly brightened. I have to friends who were abused (one sexually from her father and another beaten to a pulp, stabbed twice and left to die.) Society sometimes thinks that people who stay with abusive mates are weak, but they are not. In fact, I'm honored to be in the presence of these women and listen to their stories. If some fail to leave the abusive relationship it's mainly because they have been badly brain-washed into thinking they will never survive out in society (a lie the abuser tells their spouse for ensured control of their victim.) For those women that fight back and go for counseling they are the lucky ones".
