The man I wanted to spent the rest of my life with said terrible things to me, pushed me, shook me, and kicked me out. I should move on and never look back. But I am so so hurt. I’m afraid I’m too broken to ever find someone who will treat me as you all say your partners treat you. I’m honestly not even convinced that type of relationship really exists. I’m mourning what I thought we could have. Looking for some support. xo

There’s nothing to mourn, Bee. A man like that will only escalate, sometimes until you’re dead. Embrace your freedom and fresh start. Be grateful you got out when you did.

- Wedding: June 2019 - Tacoma, WA
I’m currently hanging out in a bubble bath my spouse made for me, with a glass of wine that’s topped off periodically, as needed. On Thursday, I was surprised with a giant, beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers from the market, just because. We just had a lovely weekend where we spent time both together and apart.
Just a handful of years ago, I was with someone who would drink and get abusive. I was hit. I was literally strangled while my kids beat on my bedroom door, terrified. I was put down, told to get out. Almost weekly. Life was miserable, but, like you, I didn’t believe anything else actually existed, so I put up with it way too long.
I’m proof that if you choose yourself and let go of the bad situation you’re in, things can be better. But first, you have to be brave enough to do the scary thing. Be okay with being alone. Love yourself enough to get out. Love yourself enough to not fall for it again and again. Nurture yourself back from this and move on. Truly believe that you deserve better.
Then go get it. ❤️

There is someone out there for you. It’s not this person. You owe it to yourself to give yourself the time to find this person!

There are so many of us that have been where you are. We thought the same way. We thought that no one would ever want a broken women. We would be to hard to fix. But guess what, we did find our forever loves. And we fixed ourselves before finding that person. But we had to get out of that abusive relationship first so that we can be strong and build back up our self esteem. You can’t worry about finding your forever love, you have to worry about getting out of this abusive relationship alive. It will only get worse. Please please get help. Call a domestic violence number. Police. You need to protect yourself. Hugs to you bee.
