Please share with others!

I’m so sorry for the pain that you’ve been through. I know from experience that recovering from trauma feels like learning to walk again after being hit by a bus.

You didn’t deserve it.

I made these affirmations because I want to walk with you in your healing process. I want to help you leave the pain and the person that hurt you in the past (where they belong). I want to help you move forward and grab hold of your BRIGHT future and fall in love with your inner BEAUTY & POWER.

    I’m a survivor of all forms of abuse from my previous toxic relationship with my ex boyfriend who was so good at playing the role of the victim and manipulation of the people who are around them and convince those people that he is so much different than he really truly was at the time/ to my knowledge, still is to this very day. He was a very persuasive manipulative and convincing victim that really had the best front made up of who he really is and always was excusing his insanely evil sadistic behavior on the substance abuse issue he had with drinking alcohol. What I mean by that is that he was constantly consuming entirely too much alcohol and would “black out,” supposedly and would use that as a lame asf lousey excuse/crutch to excuse his behavior and try to get out of any repercussions or consequences that came after the fact… I’m so glad I was able to get away from him alive and am stronger than ever before as a result of the mistake of being with him and falling for him to begin with. But I swear he was the worst type of predator and was so close to ending my life and I am forever grateful for all the ways that I’ve learned that I can overcome the triggers and continue my own personal healing from this point onward. I hope all are doing well and truly love hearing from the survivors of abuse and my heart goes out to all who suffer from the symptoms of PTSD like I do. But I think it’s important to remember that the healing process is going to take time and I am so proud of all who are able to get back up no matter how many times they get knocked down. Sending nothing but positive vibes to everyone always. Take care of yourself and be gentle and kind to yourself as much as you can. You can get through the BS and I am so happy for those who are trying their best to keep it up and get the chance to win themselves back again and reinvent themselves in their healing journey. Good luck to all and best wishes to everyone!
