    It will now be almost a month

    since I left my abuser. But the pain, however, is still affecting my life. Right after I left him I was feeling numb--I couldn't experience the grief and pain I was in. But since the last few days it has been hitting me in waves. I get flashbacks and nightmares and I well up in...

    I've been through hell

    and back with this guy he's been in my life for almost 8 years now. He's done it all; cheat, mental abuse, physical abuse and lies after lies. I really want to end this cycle. I feel alone. Stuff like this always pulls me back.

    Beating The Devil...my Mindset When I Was In An Abusive Relationship.

    Yes, he has chosen his victim well. She was weak in flesh and mind. He tells, and she obeys. He withholds, and she wonders and asks. He tells her she is insecure, and she thinks it must be true, because why then would she always feel this way, this empty, this lonely, this...
