      Falling Skys

      I saw my Woman Aid worker yesterday, and we both felt I didn’t need regular meetings any more, though I can contact her at any time.

      What a year its been, from unable to make a decision, like a frighten rabbit caught in the headlights, not even being able to choose where to sit in a cafe. Then I knew what to do but was to scared to do it without reassurance, then I do it then ask for reassurance, now I just do it.

      I over heard my mother today say “I’ve got my old daughter back”. I look in the mirror when I got home and I saw a much stronger woman.

      I still have a long way to go, and I need to sale the house so I can have no contact, but I nearly there.

      This site and the feed back has been the more support and help I can ever express.

      To you on the beginning of the journey, all I can say its worth it.

      Off out in a minute to a fg for a meal, film and a glass or two of wine. Something I wouldn’t have been able to do in the past.

      Hi fallingsky,
      Good to hear your good news, giving me more strength through mine. I’m so struggling at the moment yet my situation is easier as I don’t have any child with him though I wanted it so badly before.

      Hi Ladies

      Had lovely evening.

      Abuser was a nod tonight sadly so was our son, but I expect that was because I was out last night.

      But just let it goes over my head.

      Fallingskys, thank you so much for this post. I feel similar to how you are and I’m at the early stages of regaining my life and making my own destiny. Its been less than a month of no contact, at first I felt really overwhelmed but now I’m starting to starting to see the positives a lot more.

      Whid so glad that you are getting more positives in your life. In one way ut taking a time to sale the house has given me time to see what an awful person I have spent most of my life with.

      Here’s to the day I get my own place 😁
