When you Leave an Abusive Relationship!!!
Congratulate yourself! You may still feel helpless and overwhelmed. Be proud that you are doing something about improving your life. The biggest step is over, and you did it! You will be so busy trying to figure out how to start your life on a different path, that you may forget to appreciate your own strength. Celebrate!
The abuse that you endured was not your fault. There is never any justification for abuse. All people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Be patient with yourself. Abusers chip away at their victims’ self-respect and self-image. It will take time to repair and rebuild the damage from the abuse, so be gentle with yourself, and don’t expect it to happen all at once.
Exercise the abusive comments.
Write down all the abuser’s criticisms that haunt you and cause you to keep undervaluing yourself.
