Power, Control & Violence

Stumbling onto the Duluth Model (referred to in Domestic Violence), I am reminded of all the control-freaks I've known over the years - both male and female, both distant and recent past - who fit into the Power & Control wheel, using every way to control & dominate me. And realising how very rare it is for me to find people that are honest, fair and trusting, supportive, respectful. That is why I feel truly grateful and lucky to be with someone who does feel that way about me, and on top of that is accountable for their own actions, shares their responsibilities and burdens, whether economic or future parenting.
