Far too many women live with this terror daily n fail to acquire the means to leave.
“Bad Moms” portrays women who shed that baggage.
Please share with every woman you know. If she is not affected, she may know a woman who is. https://www.jonathanmccormick.com/controlling-men-and-how-to-regain-your-life/
You turfed your abuser, now what?
Healing will take time and patience. Assessing what went wrong in your abusive relationship can consume you. Don’t do it. Shit happens. We make mistakes and end up with the wrong person. https://www.jonathanmccormick.com/you-turfed-your-abuser-now-what/
Changing locations, getting a new job and moving on works. Not immediately, but it does according to many women who have, unfortunately, been in your shoes.
Read what process other women have used and now enjoy their freedom https://www.jonathanmccormick.com/you-turfed-your-abuser-now-what/
A friend had this experience and did just that; moved, new job etc. but she found she was making the same mistakes, being drawn to losers…again. A female friend suggested she engage in some of the same activities listed below. She gave up on trying and found what she was seeking playing volleyball at the park on a Sunday with girlfriends.
Understanding domestic violence can be difficult for some who have not experienced the terror or know someone who has.
The survivors I teach share their stories and they are identical to these.
I hope you will take a few moments to see how these women were controlled and many beaten and how survival has brought them a new life.
