She wrote: "My mother was in an abusive marriage; I watched a powerful independent woman get demeaned and lose her strength. She stayed for a million reasons, she was physically and mentally distorted. Then one day she came home asked me to pack my bags, grabbed my sister and never returned."
"She left my step dad with everything and started afresh. She never got a penny from him and when I think about how abusive he was not once did anyone fight for her to leave him. "The children" was always thrown in her face and she stayed for them. Until it got worse."

"I keep thinking about what it took Babes to actually gather the courage to show the world how she's being hurt. I have never been in an abusive relationship but I saw one and the strength it takes for an abused woman to put herself out there to get help is indescribable.
That was her ticket to leaving, her call for help and anyone who tries to shame her or make up excuses for why she didn't leave are f*cking insensitive and should never speak about abuse. So many women being abused are seeing this and our reaction to this might help millions."
