Renowned author and counselor, Frank Adofoli, has advised women to love themselves more so they can boldly reject men who are not good for them and are only in to waste their time.
Counselor Adofoli gave this piece of advice when he took his turn as a guest on GhanaWeb TV’s love and relationship programme, Moans and Cuddles.
According to him, most women stay and endure abusive relationships because they do not love themselves enough or may have low self-esteem and so take whatever ill-treatment that is meted out to them.
He said if women trusted and valued themselves to believe that however they are, there is someone out there specially made for them, they would not be selling themselves short.
Counselor Adofoli was addressing Dee, a viewer who shared her story with Moans and Cuddles.
Read Dee’s story below:
Hi Moans and Cuddles, My name is Dee, I was previously married to a man I loved so much, but we couldn’t have children after 6 years of marriage and his mother made him divorce me, brought in another woman and drove me out of my marital home.
I met this guy a few months after my divorce and I got pregnant. Now I have a beautiful baby boy, but this guy is so abusive, a womanizer, and he doesn’t respect me at all. He insults me in public with the fact that he is the only one who could give me a child etc. Any time I try to leave, he threatens to kill himself. I am stuck, the good thing is we don’t live together. What should I do?
