'She Persisted': Artist and Writer Louise Gallagher on Surviving an Abusive Relationship
Show Notes

Abuse is one person's cruel and calculating control over another, the self-aggrandizement of the abuser purchased at the humiliating expense of the abused. It is soul damaging. But it need not be soul destroying. Louise Gallagher's story is a shining illustration of that. Finally free of a four-and-a-half year relationship with a man who spoke like a lover but acted like a puppeteer, Louise discovered that he had left part of her intact, the part that was still able to love. It was that love that brought her back to life, leaving her both stronger and wiser than before and able to inspire and encourage others caught in similar webs of deceit. This is her story of resilience.
