If you've ever watched the movies where the battered wife goes off to a women's shelter only to return to the husband who beat her, you will know exactly what I'm talking about! This is more common than you think! I was a Youth Advocate and foster parent for five years, and I worked with women who tended to hold on to husbands and boyfriends at the risk of losing custody of their own children. It is hard to understand, but this is also a karmic energy pattern.
In order to break this cycle of negative karma, we must first be honest with ourselves. We must WANT a positive lifestyle more than anything else, more than the comfort zone!" ~ Freda M. Chaney, KARMA ROAD
