Abusive Realationships.

Hello lovely ladies!

Just thought I would update you and explain why I've been absent for a few months..
I've been going through a really long nasty messy brake up and it's been difficult to think about much else.
The problems started a good 7/8 months ago but it recently became unsafe for me to be around him anymore.
He is Finally gone and I'm now happier than ever and i'm really really enjoying being single and not having to answer to anyone.
Being away from him has made me realise how much he wore me down and how much of ME I had lost. Realising that I had gone from a strong independent person to someone who was constantly treading on eggshells, fearful and unhappy was a blow. Abuseive relationships are things that happen to other people right? but when you are in the thick of it it's hard to see what's really going on.
Everyday I'm feeling more myself, everyday I feel stronger and everyday I get back a little piece of me he took.
This "man" is going to spend the rest of his life ruining every opportunity he gets to better himself and fucking up every relationship he has because that is all he knows how to do. I almost feel sorry for him. Almost..

If there are any girls out there who are in the same situation I was in, please tell somebody.
There is endless support out there and although it's scary, you need to be strong and be brave. Remember who you are and you will be a much happier, safer person for it!

Thank you SO much for sticking with me, and HELLO! to my new followers!
Hopefully normal blogging will resume once all this has calmed down.
I'm really excited to start my life again and I hope you'll be along for the journey!
