If she identifies so much with him, WHY DID SHE RUN? Her statements don't match up with her actions.


She explained it best when she said, " he carried me in his arms but also trampled me underfoot."

She very obviously developed a coping mechanism that eventually became fused with her identity. We all need social human contact. Deprived of such a necessity so long, we become desperate. Very simply, "baggers cannot be choosers."
She was dependent on him for all social interaction. She had to identify with him, he was the only one for her to identify with. And she loved him, because he was the only person for her to love. Just the same, she had to have fear for him, because he was the only one for her to fear. He had complete power over her.

Is there a better word, that ambivalence?

Also, I have to add.


When we are exposed to anything,over a long period of time, we begin to see it as normal.
