I have to say today I do feel a sense of peace.  From cutting off my family I can actually say that it was the best thing I could have ever done for my well being.  I feel stronger, wiser and most of all happier.  I pledge from now on I will stay in that state of happiness and peace.  Nothing will ever bring me down or put me down again.  I will allow bumps down the road.  Though now I have the tools to handle them and not let them bother me.
 I am the way I am because I am a loving, caring, and sensitive person.  That person in the past felt that is was OK to be emotionally abused by family members.  Now I have put my foot down and said, "ENOUGH".   I have found the strength to say that LOVE comes without emotional abuse and not to accept anything less but  LOVE with out the strings.  
The people that hurt me do not love me and need to back away.  I did that and am so happy I did it for myself.  One who respects and loves themselves will find love and respect back from people especially total strangers. That is what has happened here on these boards.  Thank you to each and every one of you for caring.
