What is the key to being completely free? How do you get emotionally free of all the hurt, pain, regret, anger, and hate? It took me years to figure it out after repeatedly experiencing the same circumstances. I was on a carousel going round and round…only to return to the same place. I felt as if I was trapped, literally not able to get out from my surroundings. Something was holding me back .. some invisible force keeping me from moving forward.
I discovered one day that I had to make a decision . I had to let go somehow of all of this that was holding me down. I had to forgive whoever was causing me this pain… Not only forgive, but I had to move on with my life without them. It was the only way that I would be at peace. It was not an easy decision , and definitely a hard one to make. However, in order to move on with my life and start getting my mind back, I had to. When you have done everything you can in a relationship, but still it is not working.. you must do what is right for you in order to keep your sanity. I realized in order for me to rise up from “the ashes” , I needed to forgive and move on with my life .
When I finally stood up for myself and made the decision , I discovered a freedom that I had never felt before. A weight was lifted from my heart. I had a chance, a chance to begin again. I could finally start my new life. I didn’t have to stay unhappy. I also realized that the person that was giving me this pain, the person that I needed to forgive, was not the only person out there! Surprising how I came to this conclusion. They had such a hold on my mind, I could not even get past the pain. This person had such control over my mind. Until one day , I made that decision. I made the decision to walk away. I gave myself a new chance again at happiness. A chance to begin again.
Then ,what I discovered is…
Never let one person determine your value,
That one person’s opinion of me was all I was focusing on.
You must stand up for yourself. If you are in any kind of abusive relationship, you must fight the fear ,that you are feeling.
You must stand up for yourself, because when you do, the fear in you diminishes and the strength in you arises
and that is when I felt the power in me.
I felt no fear anymore
and NOTHING can have authority over you anymore
YOU WILL BE SET FREE

Thanks for sharing. I suffer from this and your post really opened my eyes. Glad you made the decision to walk away from the abuse and rise above it to start anew. It’s not easy to forgive but you did for you, to heal. 💜
