Quote on abuse: Survivors of any and all abuse become very good at anticipating moods of others, looks, actions, all of it in an effort to survive. Believing that if we can be agreeable, be compliant and loving, do things how they want, that we will be safe. This becomes our way of live." - Darlene Ouimet. www.HealthyPlace.com
I am not damaged. Surviving abuse can leave tremendously deep scars, but you can work through them and take back your life from the nightmares, reclaim your beauty and strength as your own birth right and begin now. Do not allow yourself to remain enslaved forever.
