Let me tell you something. You left that man because he abused you and you stayed true to what you wanted to do with your life. Being a music teacher and a writer is a wonderful thing to be. One of the reasons I left my husband is because he didn’t understand my music and the writing.
The day after I left him, I got my first piece published and then I started getting popular on Medium. Let that woman talk down to you, that’s fine. She and Sarah won’t be happy in the same way we are, and I hope they are someday. Keep being beautiful.
You did the right thing for your life.
