one day at a time

Well done for getting out. I know it’s very hard for you and frightening too. Ignore any threats from him. He will say anything to make you out to be the bad one.
Your daughter needs to be safe with her mum. Love and hugs from you is all she needs to feel secure. Belongings can be replaced.
Try to see the positive in nothing happening until Monday. It gives you today and tomorrow to yourself without all the questions from the authorities. It gives you time to bond more with your daughter. It gives you a little space to start healing emotionally and physically.
Don’t reply to his messages but do keep them as a record.
Keep posting here and ringing the helpline too. You will get through this. You’ve made the first step. Take each day at a time and remember that every hour that passes is another hour free from the torment and abuse.
You’re a survivor. And life will get better for you. (( Big hug)) for you and your precious daughter. Xx
