You already ARE a survivor. The abuse you endured at home from your father set you up for even greater forms of abuse at the hands of other men. B-- saw an opportunity when he heard you'd been hit by your father. He knew your vulnerability was to have someone who seemed to really care about you, sweep you off your feet by saying all the right things. Then, when he had you where he wanted you, he showed his true colours. And though it's always good to hear that survivors have loving people in their lives, it's very important that healing be at the top of the priority list. Even above another relationship, because of the risk of choosing someone who will also be abusive in some way. We all need people in our lives who are supportive, that's for sure. But they don't replace the healing that must take place within us when we come from abuse. Your wings were longer ago built. They now just need some repairs so you can soar to heights you can only dream about. I send you love, light and healing energy, Elizabelle. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
