    Wow, I had no idea you’d been through all that! Shows how amazing both our Gods are and how resilient the human spirit is. I’ve had to learn, and am still learning, similar lessons with relationships. I’ve been told “you’re not out of the forest yet” but I can see the way out.

    “how long-term abuse tends to impact people in more clinical terms” <— regarding that, you might want to contact my partner. She knows a lot about the clinical terms.

    I can't like this entry, I also can't say anything that would make a difference. I can say this: no, nothing of this was ever your fault. You never deserved any of what happened.

    I also just talked with Loki, and I deeply regret that He has to hurt people so. I don't often talk with Him about stuff that happens with other devotees, but you're so important to me that I couldn't just sit there and do nothing. Please let me know if there is anything I can do…

    • Thank you. I think I’m . . . good? Dealing with it? *hand-waving* (Thanks for the pointer to more info; I will try to remember to drop her a note.)

      I’ve expressed some dislike of His methods/impact on other people on occasion myself. I figure if I am sympathizing with them I might as well tell Him directly sometimes, too, rather than pretend it isn’t happening. It may not make any difference, and I don’t go on and on at length, but I feel awkward acting like He has no idea how I feel about it. :|

    • I mean there’s no denying His methods seem to be pretty effective, but *shakes head* As awful as this push was, though, I’m not angry or grumpy or anything about it, unlike several other previous pushes (including some of the build-up steps to this one). Being able to see pretty clearly what was going on and why made a big difference.

        yes, that is definitely true… I’ve not had a comparable experience, although Loki has pushed a number of my buttons in the past, including my most idiotic one — which is the one that is most liable to one day ruin my life for me.

        When He did that, it was hell for me. I mean absolutely awful… still, even while it was happening (or rather, during the build-up and immediately after), I completely understood why and why He had to be like that.

        He doesn’t enjoy it, either. He may look the part but He’s known for looking many parts. But what I learned, essentially: He takes a risk everytime He has to do that kind of thing.

        Anyhow, you are definitely right: knowing what is going on and why, makes a huge difference. (Just don’t count on Him to tell you — I think figuring it out yourself is part of the deal).

    Thank you for sharing this.
    It gave me some thoughts about not having my boundaries respected in a relationship.
