This is a very difficult thing to do, especially when you’ve experienced trauma and abuse. But it’s not impossible. It’s just difficult. You have to remember something very important as well: Nothing that happened to you was your fault and you didn’t deserve any of it. You deserve better! Love shouldn’t hurt. Please remember that as you go on your healing journey. Please don’t rush your healing either. You need to trust yourself and know that everything will in fact be okay. You will get through this and you will come out the other side stronger than before. You also need to take time and set boundaries for yourself and others. It will receive no push back. Remember this.
