Hi! I just joined this community after kicking my boyfriend out for the second time now. I have endured more mental torment than physical abuse, and the things he has said and fear he placed in me has left me with some deep scars. However, I do feel confident to move on independently. Being a single mom of two toddlers is difficult, but I know I can do this, and I believe my healing starts with believing in myself and my abiliies to go on without him. This is hard, because of the way he makes me feel sorry for him, but I know thats part of the abusing cycle he constantly does, and this relationship has only lasted FOUR MONTHS so I can imagine what it would escalate into... anyhow, I am still hurt and afraid because of the intensity of the manipulation, intimidation, attacks, lies, games, and many other ways he would work on me. Thank you for listening- I often keep dark secrets of my life hidden to keep up my 'perfect family' facade- and coming out empowers me and helps so much. Thank you.
