      I desperately need to heal as I am getting sucked in again in this relationship.
      I keep nearly ended it then I can’t and I’m stuck in the cycle. Craving the dopamine of the live bombing and affection.
      I am not emotionally mature because of my previous long term DV violence relationship that I took about 3 years of working with WA to get out.
      I feel like I have wasted that now.
      I have freedom now but this relationship is far from healthy and I’m starting to look how I used to before grey skin, sunken eyes, kind find enjoyment in things and feeling like what’s the point in doing things anymore.
      I need to heal before it’s too late for me.
      Where do I start? Books? Websites? How do I do inner work?
      Maybe one of you know???

      I’ve found things like the Freedom Programme group work and the Living With The Dominator book helpful.
      As well as mental health things like CBT, therapeutic activities etc.
      Wishing you lots of healing.

      Can you try do what you did the last time to get out?
      Also, can I ask about what you mean not emotionally mature due to DV? I’ve always thought this is what’s happened to medue to being in abusive relationship my whole adult life but didn’t know it’s an actual thing…,

      Domestic violence counseling and domestic violence groups if you can find good ones that specialise in domestic violence itself rather than general counselling.
