My first time doing something like this, how could I let myself get so lost.How could one person make you feel so worthless. I'm trying to get out of a toxic relationship. I've been mentally physically and emotionally abused. He isolated me from my family and friends, which now I don't blame them for not being there for me when I went mia cause I thought it was true love. he convinced me that social media and friends ruins relationships and from being a victim of childhood abuse, he has convinced me no one can't be trusted. So now that I'm trying to leave him because I'm tired of being his punching bag and stabbed emotionally with his hateful words. I'm feel even more isolated and alone, I need strength and guidance. please if anyone is listening or reading this, sometimes just one person saying "Everything will be fine" means a lot then silence.. Sometimes being alone is the loudest for me..

Hey hun, hang in there I'm sorry it's taken me a while to respond but I'm here now. I was in your position just a few months ago, when i broke things off with my abusive ex i couldn't get out of bed for 3 days but my friends and family noticed and came to my aid. If you a really alone (not living with a gal pal like i was) go to some one and say "help, this is what happened, I'm alone, i need help" My mother has been nothing but a saint about what happened to me, my father a man i used to despise has been as understanding as he could. I leaned on my friends and family and that's all it took, when people found out what happened they took me in, gave me food and shelter and time to recover and get back on my own two feet. I'll be grateful for the rest of my life. With a little therapy you'll find that self worth again and you will live a life that right now you couldn't even imagine. Trust me. I feel so good right now, i never through this was possible, I couldn't have imagined it when i was being yelled into submission every night. But it's possible. You'll be okay, it won't be easy but you can do it! I believe in you!

It is debilitating. Takes a while to get ur mental strength back in order to leave. One thing that helped me after I got my strength back was knowing, "no one is powerful enough to make u feel negative about urself, even though it "appears" that way. Hang in there. Once u make a decision u r leaving him, that's when u know ur strength is "building". And later, u find that u can build ur strength as high as u want and never allow anyone to interfere with it again.
