Reflection. While reading I’m not your Victim, I had mixed feeling of sadness and anger. I felt bad with the distributions of her injuries with her broken nose and stitches tearing. I can’t imagine the physical and emotional pain she suffered. I also a couple of times I threw the book, because I was mad at Beth for staying and still loving Sam after all he did. Also, felt angry when Beth didn’t get the support she needed. I was waiting for Beth to kill Sam because he deserved it. I know people shouldn’t take their own justice, but victims eventually get tired of all the abuse and suffering and don’t of the consequences. I also felt very emotional for the children who ere victim as well and witnesses, were they all suffered from trauma and depression. I am glad that Beth and her children after all got counseling help and they are not involved in a violent environment anymore. I am glad that today women and men are supported and
