Thanks for bravely sharing your story. I completely understand how you feel — the elation of feeling the immense love in your heart; but also the fear of who this person is. For me, I look back and realize it’s my desire to be loved unconditionally that attracted my abuser into my life and why he stuck. Now I know that I need to love myself. Enough to walk away and set boundaries that nurture myself. Because I deserve it and you do too. I wish you the best of luck on your journey to reclaim you!
