Shortly before I left my marriage, I was stopped in my tracks by the words
“You’ve become a strong woman and I don’t think I like that.”
It felt like such a deep betrayal. At that moment, I had to get honest with myself.
I could no longer deny my partner and I had very different visions. I was not behaving as the “good wife” he saw me as. I was “stepping out of line”. He did not see strength as a valuable asset in a woman.
