@kelly72 I realized that now, I know my ignored my intuition. I kept trying with this man because I thought he need to see that someone loved him and cared. He kept putting himself down saying he was always going to end up alone and now I realize he used that so I wouldn’t leave. I did so much damage to myself, that I just want to heal but I’m still in this darkness.

@Foundlove in the beginning when we started dating it was good, but then I would notice stuff he would throw tantrums because I would show up late to see him. I felt guilt trip into a relationship, one night he tried to choke himself with a cord because we sometimes had trouble understanding each other. Other times when we would argue he would start hitting himself or get his keys and leave, just to avoid a confrontation he would apologize the next day and say he never really meant the hurtful words he said. He would blame me that I would always start with something because I would always call him out on stuff that he would do or question him about his social media.

@A.sanchez28 We all did. We were sucked into their webs. I guess that's why groups like this exist. We're here for each other. You will heal. It might not happen overnight, but you will. You are strong. I can hear it in your words. You will get over those feelings of ignoring your intuition. You'll realize that because you are human and having human feelings that you reacted like a human...they cannot do that. Yes, they're human, but they never developed the inner soul and mature emotions of a human. They are like avatars. That's why they lack empathy. They play people. You may be somewhat in the darkness right now, but your responses show that light is coming. You see what he did and you can explain his behaviors in such a way that it shows you realize how he used manipulations to toy with you, like toddlers. Yes, damage was done but you will get through this. Stay strong. Surround yourself with light, music, fresh fruits (esp. citrus), a new plant, super clean your house, get a new bedspread, try a new fragrance, etc. Drink teas with lemon, stretch, go for walks, sing, watch funny movies....you will get this. Bear hugs!
