Once an abuser knows what your weakness is, this will forever fuel the abuse that will verbally proceed. We can try to find love in alternate places but the bigger picture shows us that if the healing doesn’t come from within, we will forever choose the wrong lover.
We don’t just go away. We may stay out the light for a while but at the end of the day we are survivors. Survivors don’t hide we flourish. I have been flourishing. I pray you have been too.
An abuser may leave you alone for a while but they do come back. They know that in some way, shape or form, they can break you. Manipulation will always be their tactic. Do not be afraid to go to get help..because when they decide to come back..that anxiety you felt when you were with them will come back 10 times harder. Protect your peace.
Having flashbacks is normal. Remembering how you felt when he would yell at you or how fast your heart would beat when he charged towards you. Everyday is a journey but giving up is not an option…you left..you already did the hardest part ♥️
i am new to this survival and am still healing. This blog is allowing me to do so while letting women know they are not alone. As I heal I want to help. I am a mother. A coworker. A student. I am just like you. This can happen to anyone and I want fearing women to know just that. You are not crazy. You are scared.
