Grief is a weird thing|
So, it should be of no surprise that I see a lot of grief in my job, but it is rarely grief that is personal to the degree that it currently is.
Last week a co-worker of mine was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. Let that sink in for a moment. She was murdered by her ex. If you want to be simultaneously appalled and take a stroll over to https://ncadv.org/statistics and read the statistics about this sort of thing.
She went to his home to retrieve her property, and he beat her, then strangled her. I know this because I spent the better part of the last two days helping to minimize the damage done to her face so that her family could see her one last time.
Ladies, and guys both, do not engage with your exes if they have been even slightly abusive (emotionally, physically, financially, sexually, in what ever way possible) with out backup. Please do not become another statistic.
