A Whole New Beginning
Telling myself I was finally free and never had to walk on eggshells again, that there was a life out there that I wanted again for me and my children and that he wasn't going to win anymore. He was the loser in the long run of things and we will move forward and be happy and live a normal life again. He never ever will, he'll always be what he is because he doesn't know how to change. But we will always have each other.
We moved home to new surroundings and made it ours - not something he controlled and destroyed.
I still struggle with emotions nearly two years on but saying that it's not like it was when he was in my life. I found researching domestic abuse and knowing the reasons is helping me. I am moving on! It's taking time and it's not easy but my life is now my own and I now have the chance to find me again, not some quivering wreck that was isolated and a shell of my former independent self. You think it'll never happen to you, but it truly happens to the best of us, you are unsuspecting and caring and see the bigger picture, until one day you realize you have been drawn into something you never thought you would.
But there is a way out and you will find it when you are ready and you will survive and live your life in your way again, it's true: what doesn't kill you makes you stronger!!!
