I put wallpaper up, I did an entire wall…. I am so proud of myself as for decades (with him!) I was told no, he would do it (but he never did), I can’t do it, laughing at me being useless at any DIY…. I totally believed him in the end but yesterday I wallpapered my lounge and I smiled so much 😁
Hey, fantastic! It’s wonderful finding out how much we can do when left to our own devices and unemcumbered by negativity, belittlement and abuse. I’m currently doing my own little DIY project – not sure that I’m quite ready for wall papering yet though. 😮
I remember those feelings. My ex destroyed my self confidence, made me feel so reliant on him which is what abusers do. I know the pride you feel and this is just the beginning. That girl who was there pre abuse is still there. Bring her out x
Well done, when they tell us often enough that we are useless we start to believe them, and realise that it is easier to give in. When we start to believe in our selves the sky is the limit, we can do anything, usually better then them, keep standing back and look at what you have done and be proud of you.
