This quote has haunted me ever since the day I first read it. Mostly because I feel it hits such a soft place in me, a subconcious place I didn't even recognize. I've always watched the shows on tv and saw how an abused female takes the beating from her husband/and or controlling boy friend and said "Why don't you just RUN! Get away from this abuse!" But I've never stopped to consider that hey, maybe she stays because this domestic abuse is a repetition of what happened in her childhood, what she's used to. And so this brings me to another quote : " Its funny how Knowledge Changes Perception."
