MY ABUSER SENT ME A FRIEND REQUEST – UN-FRIGGIN-BELIEVABLE!
I have been free of my abuser for some time and live with an amazing man who treats me like gold. And I like it.
For the most part, I have forgiven my abuser because I believe that they too have personal demons that they are dealing with. Did not make it right that he beat me but it does speak to the cycle of abuse.
Two short days ago, I was working on my soon to be released book about leaving my abuser and I notice a pop-up that says you have a new friend request. I love new friend requests. You just never know what kind of fun, mischief will develop.
THE 4 ELEMENTS OF PERSONAL PEACE AFTER ABUSE
I remember when I left my abuser, I fought to find “happiness”. It was such an elusive target. Happiness. I wasn’t even sure what that meant.
I tried to be happy. Smiling at the right times. Being social. Dating. But it just felt empty. Without meaning or purpose. The feeling of happiness was fleeting.
I spent a great deal of time questioning whether or not I even wanted happiness. Was I ready to be happy. And through the process of writing and wondering, I discovered that what I really wanted was PEACE.
