    Abuse

    I share those feelings of not ever being good enough. When I was little I was abused and now I just got out of an abusive relationship with a man who abused and betrayed me. I am grateful to be out of it, but I am still trying to get on day by day with these feelings.

    What Now?

    I left him a year ago after ten years of verbal abuse. My trigger words, "repulsive", "disrespectful", "incapable", followed by, " you disgust me"... They still are a part of me. At times, I don't believe them. Then, I get scared and think maybe he was right. I want to scream!
