"There's a difference between goodbye & letting go. Goodbye is 'I'll see you again when I'm ready to hold your hand, & when you're ready to hold me.' Letting go is 'I'll miss your hand. I realized it's not mind to hold, & I will never hold it again'." Him
The physical and mental abuse takes so much from you, your soul, your heart. Abuse steals your confidence, courage, self-worth. It robs you of your joy, your life, and your love. But you have to keep praying...always pray. Pray through the pain, the horrible words, the bruises, and the tears. Pray!
