When you have been told for so long that you are nothing that you are worthless that no one will ever love you. You begin to believe it. I did. I still do. But it’s so hard to break away from what you know.

Especially when there is shame involved I was to ashamed to ask for help to tell people what was going on. I almost lived two lives I had a fake me that went to work and the shops smiling and pretending that everything was ok. Then there was |is the real me the one that was just an empty shell walking around with no real goals for myself.

I look back now that I am on the other side and I wish somebody had just reached out. Although even if they did I’m not sure I would of taken the help. I still struggle to ask for help I still have trust issues but ladies life is worth fighting for.

There are people out there who care who will help you who will listen to you and who will love you. Please start fighting back it’s hard and it’s scary but it’s so worth it.

I spent 14 years half my life in a relationship that destroyed me.

Now I am building myself back up again .
