      Falling Skys

      I saw this and wanted to share, because it seems so apt to my feelings.

      I am scared every time I stand up against his wishes. But the hope of a better life gives me the strength to carry on.

      Awww that’s lovely Falling Skys – I’ve been out for some time now – and I still can’t say no to that man – BUT I do have hope that one day I WILL be strong enough – I don’t have the strength just yet – but I long for the day I find it…….I hope the day will come when he can no longer control me – and I will stand up to him and say what I want.

      We are no longer together – but every now and then he asked me to do something I don’t want to do or he wants to do something I dont agree with – and its like I open my mouth WANTING to say one thing – and something totally different comes out of my mouth – its not me, I’m not who I want to be – not yet …….but I will get there one day……..

      Thanks for those encouraging words. x*x

      Hello everyone. I plan to leave my soon to be ex ex-husband. I used to have fear. But now I have faith,hope, trust and courage. I’m actually looking forward to leaving. I had a sense of liberation when I sold my wedding ring. I’m never looking back, just looking forward. I’m prepared for the worst and hope for the best outcome.

      Good luck Goddess7. It’s not easy breaking free, but it’s so worth it. Remember we are all here routing for you.
