She said she never thought that she would be one of those women, but she was. She said, “it's crazy right, to love someone who hurts you? But you know what was crazier? Thinking that someone that hurt me loved me.” The abuser made her feel less than. Like she wasn't good enough. He made her feel like a terrible person and that everything bad that happened in their relationship was her fault. The most common fear she had was wondering if anyone will love her the way he did. She had no one to talk to because he isolated her. He ruined all of her relationships on purpose so she would have no one. He wanted to be the only one in her life so she had to stay.
This is terrible and the abusers are messed up. “For the sake of your life, your mental health, and physical health, get out,” This was her advice because that's the only way you'll be happy again. Do what's best for you.
Getting out is the only way you'll be happy again
