There are a handful of good moments in my relationship with Duncan, but these are overshadowed by all of the bad times.

The euphoria of love hung in the air in the beginning.  However, there were a number of red flags I ignored.   Instead of acknowledging these and dealing with them, I could feel the undercurrent of sadness that remained in my heart and mind.

To have been so happy, I couldn’t understand why I carried such sadness around with me.

When things were going good, I wanted to be happy and tried very hard to be happy.  However, that under lying current of sadness still hung in the atmosphere.  Part of that is because deep down I knew this moment would not last and the cycle of abuse would inevitably be repeated.

Have you been sad when you should have been happy?
