You Are Looking At An Abused Woman, And You Didn’t Even Know It

She sits and watches the world go by, sipping her coffee slowly relishing its taste.

She adds some more items to her grocery list.

She orders another coffee and waits patiently for it to arrive.

The first indication that something may be wrong is you see her twisting her wedding ring round and round, and she keeps glancing at her phone.

Her coffee arrives, she relaxes a little, she slowly drinks it, then with much reluctance, she gets up, pays for her coffee and begins to fill her cart.

She takes her time picking items, looking with unusual interest at items on the shelf.

Perhaps you are wondering what could possibly be so interesting about grocery shopping.

It’s not the shopping at all.

It’s the freedom of being away from him.

She is enjoying every second away from him, the peace it gives her.

She pays for her groceries and leaves the store.

You watch her load her trunk, take her cart back.

She seems lost in thought, and she is.

She is wondering what mood he is in.

She is anxious about returning home.

You are looking at an abused woman, and you didn’t even know it.

She wants a man who reminds her that there’s no need to burden herself with everyone’s problems. That it’s healthy and okay to relax and let things be. And it’s good to enjoy life and her achievements without worrying about the things she can’t control.

She needs a strong-hearted man who reassures her that there’s no need to be hard on herself. She doesn’t need to strive for perfection all the time. She is good enough.

A strong woman wants a partner who understands that she’ll never ask him for assistance. She needs a lover who is willing to offer his help even without waiting for her approval. Although it might be unfamiliar to him, he needs to understand that she has been reliant on herself all most all her adult life.

But once he breaks through into her heart, life with her will be happy and simple. He’ll make her a better person, and be the man she has been waiting for.

She wants a man who understands that she can stand on her own even when he’s with her. But this doesn’t make you less valuable to her. She still wants you in her life.
