Oh darlin! I started crying as soon as I read your update! I am sooo proud of you!! I remember my first night in my little apartment after I left my abusive ex, it was terrifying and exciting. I wanted to throw up and dance around. It was a very confusing time, but looking back it was one of the best times of my life. I was able to finally find myself again and learn to love me. Over the next while you will doubt your decision, but always keep in mind the feeling you have right now of being able to finally breathe. I hope you know how special you are and how absolutely freakin’ BRAVE you are!! You are my hero. Sending you love, strength, prayers and lots of big hugs sweetie! Love ya

OP: I am so happy for you, and so incredibly proud of you.
KoiKove : great advice.
I’d also add get identity theft protection for yourself, if you think him racking up credit card debt is at all possible (I’d assume it is, he sounds like a vindictive prick). It’ll prevent anyone (him included) from opening cards in your name, essentially. (Except you, I assume). I know regular people who’ve had their identity stolen and they use it without a problem and are happy for it.

Just sending you a great BIG congratulations and hug!!! I’m sure you have very mixed feelings and maybe even feel different minute to minute, and that’s totally ok.
You did the right thing! Even though the next few months might be a bit tough or emotionally draining, always know that you did the right thing. I am beyond thrilled for you and proud of you. Girl, YOU DID IT. You are so strong and your world is filled with endless possibilities, and you did that.

My favourite threads on Wedding Bee are always about pets or pictures of newborn babies looking like grumpy old men. This one trumps them all. It’s amazing. People here are amazing, it gives me so much faith and it warms my cockles no end!

I didn’t get to your thread before you left, unfortunately, but having read most of it now, including your updates, I’m in awe. Both of your bravery and courage, and the support of the bees who have commented. What an amazing conclusion. Congratulations, bee, and thank you for taking your puppy. Big hugs to you!

Hey! You’re doing amazingly.
Right now, your feelings are perfectly normal. Hang on to your feelings of being relieved and excited, because it’s important to remember that even though you feel uncomfortable to some extent/devastated about leaving, you are actually doing the right thing!
Keep being your impressively calm self and take as many deep breaths as you need. Of course, it’s completely understandable if deep breaths isn’t enough at times. Call your parents, talk to your friends, or even post here! Whenever you need support or to express the overwhelming feelings of it all, you have lots of loving people to fall back on – because there are people who genuinely and properly love you. (:

So happy for you Bee!!!
As PPs have suggested–please continue to take measures to stay safe. This may get harder before it gets better but at least you are in your own place. Don’t talk to him, don’t meet with him. Your lawyer is his new point of contact.
Try to do something new for yourself every day, whether it’s buying a new throw pillow or signing up for a class. You are amazing.
