How did you feel about your abuser and/or your relationship in the days before you left?
I felt hurt and tired. I cried on the way to court for our divorce still hoping he would change.
How long ago did you leave? How do you feel today?
I left in 2010. I feel free – no more walking on eggshells! I feel blessed to be free!
Is there anything else you would like to say?
It’s a process. Once you’re free, you really need to take time to rebuild yourself, don’t jump into another relationship. Heal before you move on if not you’ll be starting a new relationship with a lot of baggage then wonder why that didn’t work either.
What happened that made you decide to leave?
I wrote out my story on Doses of Hope. It explains why I left and how I did it successfully.
