Not all men are what you've experienced or read about. There are some exceptional men out there; I know this personally because I've been married to one of them for over 31 years now. What's important in finding someone else is to find your Self first, and then to treat your Self with dignity and respect and self-love. When you treat your Self well and with respect, you teach others to treat you that way. Don't accept disrespect, and don't expect that all men will treat you with disrespect otherwise you will create what you really don't want. Don't ever settle for someone who treats you poorly. What you want for your future starts today by living in the Present and looking deep within your Self for Who You Really Are. I do hope you've got access to some type of counselling or therapy. We all need help to deal with what we've endured, April, and to help us see things with a different perspective. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing more of your story with my visitors and me.

Healing
by: Rita M

Hi April,
I am sorry for the abuse you experienced.I just want to tell you that not all men are like what you have mentioned.That was all you have been shown.I can see why you have been stuck in that mode of thinking.I commend you for telling your story because it is impoortant for you to bring it in.Abuse has no value and shouldn't be kept inside of you.Your worth has been stolen from you but you can get it back.I encourage you to get coucelling and let it all out and replace it with freedom and happiness.You don't have to have the past haunting you at all.There are councellors that specialize in trauma and help you to move on with peace of mind.We are like a spounge and hold it in.When you go for therapy they tell you that you can say what is on your heart with all the emotions along with it and that it is safe in the
room you are in with the therapist.When I broke up
with my last boyfriend that is when I took advantage of healing.I decided that dating was not an option for me while attending councelling.
I have never regretted doing this for myself.It was free of charge and well worth it.Now that I realize that I am stable I am looking after myself phyically and going out more with the confidence that I can enjoy life now.I have had to throw so many people out of my life because I wanted a new start and life style with a possitive enviroment.I have few friends now but healthy relationships with them.The biggest thing in healing was to get myself organized in my home because that is where it starts along with councelling.Having my home
organized and clean meant that it is a symbal of no longer a chaotic life and that I am in charge of my life and am very careful who I envite into my home.My life style is very important now because it is peaceful.I take time to meditate and relaxe everyday because it sets order in my life.I don't live a life in terror or anger anymore because I have freedom.Please don't deny yourself of help. I am not saying never to date again but just to take the time for yourself to get rid of the hurt and baggage first.You gain confidence within yourself.I hope you consider this because you are worth it.God Bless you.
Rita M
