Leaving Abuse Behind and Becoming the Magnificent Creature We Were Meant To Be


When victims finally face the reality that their abuser is not going to change and it is not safe to have a relationship with that person, they often feel lost about what they are going to do with the rest of their lives. Many victims report that they have to go through a period of profound fear, anxiety, and mourning after their choice to leave. Yet they also report an increasing sense of relief, freedom, and strength. They become the change they seek in their lives. They are no longer held back or controlled. They stop rewarding their abuser for what he did by effectively giving him not only their past but their future as well. They become a transitional character in their family. They form new healthy relationships where they can love and be loved. They reprogram their minds with truth and move into a future where they can fulfill their potential.Pin It
