Moving forward after abuse is so hard, you have had your identity taken from you. You are damaged and broken. You have to live everyday, moment by moment as you tend to be hyper vigilant and stressed.
The thing I’ve learned has been that you have to break the cycle of worry and self hatred. It filters down to you core and soul. You live like a robot, trying muddle through and not caring so much.
I have had to make an effort to change my mindset, this has been hard. Now I’ve moved forward, I feel that progress however slow is worth it.
