A strong man respects a woman who stands up for herself and gives as good as she gets. Only weak men name call and accuse women of having a mean streak when they don't just roll over and take the crap they dish out pretty much lol
It's a strange feeling when you are chastised for standing up for yourself against traumatic and soul crushing mental and emotional abuse. I'm glad to say that I can now walk away the better person. It's just a shame that I allowed myself to be damaged.
