There’s a black and blue person out there right now, in pain from the physical violence they suffered from the one they trusted. Their bruises will begin to fade to purple . . . then yellow . . . and eventually will disappear. Their fear will outlast the pain. Their broken bones will mend, but only physically.
There’s a wounded heart out there. Someone who put faith in another human being, only to have it stripped away and shattered. Words thrown at them that they’ll never forget. Mental disturbances which will replay over again for the rest of their existence. Nothing can erase the pain of this, nothing can take away the destruction it causes. Their emotional state becomes broken with no promise of healing.
It comes in many forms. Some you can see. Some hide in the shadows and behind closed doors. Some show no signs at all.
