I was in an emotional sometimes physical abusive relationship for almost 8 yrs. I have since left over 2 1/2 years ago. It took me years to understand why. I believe there should be more awareness out there for young women to know what to look for. Anyone can get into abusive relationship. Especially when your empathic person when you're in vulnerable time in your life you make for an easy target. Before you know it, you're in too deep to understand what is happening. It a lot easy to say get out. In less you've have experienced a trauma bond it's one of the hardest things to walk away from. I have been grieving over this lost relationship. I am not grieving the loss of him. I am grieving the loss of myself the loss of that I thought I what I wanted the relationship to be. I have been seeking therapy. Working on loving myself forgiving myself. This time in my life I've accepted and embraced the journey.
