Mickie Zada chose to stay in a damaging relationship for 34 years because she thought it was her Calling. She believed it was her responsibility to keep her husband between the lines. While living in abuse, for decades she didn’t recognize herself as an abused spouse. She was not threatened with weapons, was not hospitalized, never called law enforcement and did not file a restraining order against her husband.
She was the strong one, the grounded
one, the dedicated wife.
She was in love.
When she left, she wondered (like nearly every abuse survivor) whether she was really abused. So many years were invested in protecting her abuser that she felt guilty defending herself by leaving.
