Thank you for articulating my thoughts, feelings, and journey. I am in the final stages of getting over an emotionally abusive relationship with a man I’d been dating for the last 18 plus months. The treatment I tolerated was far beneath my worth. I knew it, yet put up with it and even pursued him when he began to play games, leaving me exhausted with feelings of guilt and low self worth. Lo ones at a certain age will do it, especially when going through a separation and divorce from marriage of over 20 years. Yet, I still believe in love, but I’ve learned healthy boundaries are of the utmost importance. Thanks for that umph I needed to get me through today and days to come.
