I love your kind honesty and empathy in this essay, Katherine. I used to be a lot more judgmental when I was young and idealistic. I think I'm developing more empathy and understanding the older I get. I'm grateful for it. Basically, life and life situations are complex. That's the real truth of it all.

PS. I'm glad you got out of the abusive marriage! ❤️
