And I meant that I loved him unconditionally, I didn't say that he did.
Love and have compassion and be positive than judge every fucking body and be negative which is EASIER to do. My perception is my reality. I see where you are coming from and I respect you for voicing your opinion. But please understand that this man impacted my life more than anyone I know. I'm heart broken over it all. Please show some compassion.
And I'm in therapy thank you but I stand by my words. I don't think you understand how hurtful your words are. I don't think you really have a place in telling me how I should think or feel or "be thankful". You did not walk in my shoes. I'm completely aware of the truth that Pritchard was fucked up. But I've learned to find the silver lining in everything. That's all I'm saying. I have the right to voice my own opinion and I have better insight than the average. I don't know of Pritchard ever loved me. But I will always hold onto the love I have for him. I choose to
Thanks for your compassion.
Pritchard never laid a hand on me. But he was mentally and emotionally abusive. When I found this out I had a feeling that Alicia didn't want to live without him, and that seems to be the case. I went through the same thing with him but luckily cut myself off. It was unhealthy. I know me writing this night provoke some arguments and critical comments but I'm not here to argue. I'm really devastated because I had hope for him. And knowing him I know that he did love her. In his own way. I think everyone is forgiven and I've felt his presence since he left his life and it's a comforting one. I'm tired of everyone spreading hatred among hatred. Where's the compassion? Consideration? I brought good to Pritchards life when he got out of prison and reminded him of the simple beauty of life like surprising him with a birthday card....and I'm grateful for the experience. If it weren't for him doing the right thing by letting me move back home to my family I wouldn't have 3 years clean and I probably wouldn't be alive. There's beauty in pain. He was a child of God who was lost. It happend . They're gone. But I don't think they're suffering anymore.
I knew Pritchard personally, he is my ex. He had a tough upbringing and a different outlook than most people. When your told from age 6 that something is wrong with you, and raised through several institutions, you're going to learn bad behaviors. I'm not saying that the choices he made were right or excusable. But I did learn to stop and understand where people come from and why they are how they are. Pritchard was sick but he taught me what it's like to love someone unconditionally. He was very special to me and I never met his wife but im sure she was too.....
He was a lot more calm when he smoked but In my opinion it's irrelevant. He told me he would rather die than go to prison for life. I guess he meant it. I'm very sad for him and his family.
