    “The last straw was when one of his kids started treating him the same way his wife did.”

    I wanted to rescue both kids from their abusive mother but when that happened to me, I recognized that I could only save one, and the cost would be to give up the other (hopefully temporarily but yes, perhaps forever).

    But I got two of us out, my younger daughter and I—with a lot of help from friends—and in the last two years (including a finalized divorce), I’ve been working, gently and with love, to exorcise the angry critical abusive judgmental accusatory voice of my ex-wife that we both still carry around with us in our heads. I’ll know we’ve succeeded when all that’s left is serenity and hope and love.
