Yes, you are finally free! Now What? It took strength and determination to break free. It’s going to take strength, determination and patience to ensure you are recovered from the experiences of an abusive relationship.
Keep in mind that there is not a one size fits all prescription. There’s going to be trial and error as you navigate your way to a healthy relationship. But regardless of what works one thing is important for anyone. What is that you ask? Love Yourself! Let me repeat that…Love Yourself!
This is important in the healing process so that you can begin to listen to the warning signs you previously ignored. You know the ones I’m referring to. Some made you feel special when in reality it was all about control.
Love yourself enough to not allow yourself to be cut off from family and friends.
Love yourself enough to listen to that inner voice when it whispers to you that something is not right.
Love yourself enough to treasure all you have to offer to the right person.
Love yourself enough to take it slow when entering into a new relationship. As a matter of fact give yourself time to truly heal and come to grips with the circumstances you were once in.
Love yourself enough to FORGIVE yourself for past choices and decisions.
Love yourself enough to discover the gifts and talents you have that make you special.
Love yourself enough to give love a second chance once the baggage from the past has been discarded.
Most importantly love yourself enough to be happy with your own company.
Yes, you are finally FREE!
