I've been through hell. But what an abusive man does to a strong ass woman who loves herself is make her even stronger when she leaves and makes her love herself 100 times more. Thanks for the lessons. Now I'm the flames MF.
We all get unhappy at times when we feel pain. Healthy people just don't understand and sometimes I just try to seem happy for my family. But its on my face when I'm in pain, but I try to be strong sometimes and act like nothings wrong.
It's true that those people close to you won't understand what you have been through, I can barely understand and I have experienced it... Find understanding with others who have experienced it as well. Seek out therapy, support groups Facebook support groups, blogs etc. There are many good resources for connecting with those who understand because they gave been through it as well.
She's not pretty, that word is too small. She is not like the girls I used to stare at, all bend and curve and softness. She is small but strong, and her bright eyes demand attention. Looking at her is like waking up.
