      (detail removed by Moderator) I walked out with the children. It was so traumatic and we are now in a place of safety house I’m finding it really tough I don’t feel great emotionally. Worrying myself about everything ATM .
      I if course wouldn’t act but I can’t help feel abit like easier to not be here any more

      Hi justlost well done for taking that difficult step that many of us still struggle with. It will take time for you to deal with your emotions but it will get better and you are going to worry everything is very new and scary but you have your children with you focus on them and in time you will begin to feel better about yourself. Give yourself some much needed love and I hope you can move forward and be happy xx

      Huge well done for leaving, don’t underestimate how strong you were doing that and how much energy, physically & mentally that’s taken. Yes you’ve left a bad situation but be kind to yourself as you’re also going through a break up and all the cycle of emotions that evokes. On top of that the future is unknown at this stage and you’re trying to support your kids through the change. I’m tired just writing that! No wonder you’re exhausted.

      Those early days are tough, his nasty words and put downs are still very fresh and your brain will throw them at you thanks to the bond, but remind yourself of why you left. If you have a journal or anything that will help remind you that can be useful. Picture what you’d like to be doing in a year from now. Rest. It’s ok to have days where you can’t achieve a darn thing!! Write lists so it’s out of your whirling brain and can act as a tick list on the good days. You’ve got this! One step at a time x
