Samantha is a new client whose ex is ruining her life. She bravely shared with me the story of her life with her ex-husband of more than seven years. It was absolutely heartbreaking.
He was verbally abusive, calling her every name in the book except her given name or anything endearing. One Saturday, she counted thirty names she had been called by him before 9:30 am.
He was emotionally abusive, telling her she needed to lose weight or that her successful career was a fluke. She bought him everything he wanted and gave him everything she knew how to give, but it was never enough.
