Hidden Hurt Domestic Abuse Information

Aspire to become the best you that you can :)

by Jane

After being brutally assaulted by someone I thought loved me and that I thought I loved, I went through the lowest and hardest weeks of my life after leaving him.

I felt I couldn't accomplish anything, I felt powerless..

there was no punishment for him, he could continue his inhumane behaviour towards his next victims.

I felt I was no longer in control of my life, I had been manipulated, humiliated and terribly heart-broken.

Then it dawned on me that he wasn't worth the pain my mind frame was putting me through. I had to change my way of thinking. First I went to counselling and spoke with friends and family to put my thoughts in order and understand what had happened and why I was thinking and feeling the way I was.
Then I forced myself to block out the images and thoughts.. It was time to move on.

I threw out everything I had of him, blocked him completely from my life.

I took time off and went on a short holiday with a friend.

I wrote a list of goals and a good time limit to achieve each one.

I changed my hair colour from a dark brown to natural blonde and loved it.

I began a new sport and am close to achieving a six-pack. I began eating the healthiest I had ever eaten.

At work I strive to make another person happy each day and achieve my job for the day as best I can.

I go out more and visit friends more regularly.

I'm going to start modelling soon.

I'm attempting to be the best me possible and will no longer let myself be afraid to get out there. It is the best revenge I can think of ;)
