I have been out of an emotionally abusive relationship approximately 6 months. I've spent this time working on ME. Why I would allow someone to treat me this way, and would go back for more hurt and abuse several times prior to finally ending it. I've worked on issues of abandonment and am learning how to meet more of my own needs. I've worked on boundaries and realized that I had boundary problems in the past. I feel I have ENDED this relationship. I do not love this person any more, or want to be with them. I understand that he is incapable of loving anyone. I have started to think about dating again. I have such a fear - that I am not able to move forward on dating. Even though I know the red flags to watch for and I am not the same person I was , I AM TERRIFIED!!! Help me, figure out what I need to do to move forward.
