      For decades, my ex was controlling aggressive and violent. There were times when I was utterly distraught at the treatment I recieved.

      However, I’ve reached a stage in my recovery where I see so clearly, that he chose to behave this way to make himself feel superior, when actually underneath it all he was weak and pathetic.

      So, as part of processing what happened (and because I’ve got so much material, lol) I’ve started creating artwork and poetry which basically takes the p*** out of him and his actions. If you do feel ready to do this I’d recommend having a go. I’m no expert, but here’s a verse from a poem called Mr Angry, which I’m still working on:

      I looked for your emotions
      But you only got annoyed
      Reminds me of that book you bought…
      Oh yeah, ‘Into the Void’

      I haven’t written much online here but I often read the comments which are so supportive, so I am grateful for all of you who do – you’re amazing!!!

      Good on you! It’s so great to hear of others positive moments. I’m probably around the same stage of recovery as you. In my mind I have given my ex a few nicknames of tv or fictional characters 😁. This makes me visualise him as the pathetic actor he is and not the big bullying tough guy he liked to portray, and have me fear.

      Thanks for posting ❤
