  1. Yeah I listened to the whole thing and it’s really sad. No matter how many generations have passed, we have always had this problem. I’m actually a victim of domestic violence as well and it’s hard to go through, especially with family. They often pick sides and it’s tough to be alienated by those you love. I almost wanted to give into it because I couldn’t think about living a life without my family. I just couldn’t leave them. Now times have changed and I know that I can survive without my family. Still hurts though.
