One of the major things that I have learned in life, is that our outlook on life experiences play a large role in our happiness. I personally, have endured severe physical, mental, and emotional abuse, that went untreated for years. It negatively affected my life in many ways.
I sought counselling and was extremely grateful to work through somatic trauma therapy as well as EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). These exercises have helped me largely. Anyone who struggles through abusive relationships (especially moms) are encouraged to reach out, seek therapy, and move in a positive direction.
You are worthy, and don’t allow anyone or anything to make you believe otherwise.
You are strong, and will pull through... You got this.
