No one knew what was happening behind the closed doors. Their lives looked like a fairy tale. The Truth: She said it was okay and that they moved past it. She forgave him. It wasn’t over. More abuse came, but she loved him and kept trying to be a better person in the relationship. That didn’t work. She acquired more scars, but not physical ones at first. She had emotional scars. She had scars that she tried to cover up. She had scars that affected her daily, but she did her best to put on her face and smile. The more she took, the more that he said it was all her fault. She was deep in and couldn’t figure out how to get out. She couldn’t let go. He had a hold on her. She feared she couldn’t make it without him. To All the Ladies Going Through: You can make it. You have to love yourself better than that. Yes, no one wants to be lonely, but you do have to take care of yourself. Abuse that is physical or emotional can have you on eggshells and make you feel weak. Of course, forgiving is important, but don’t neglect your emotional well being. Don’t believe the lies. Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy. He is full of lies and manipulation. Don’t believe everything is your fault and never believe that it is okay to be emotionally abused. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Many say you never tell your business, which is so true, but there are times that you just might need to reach out to a trusted person like a counselor for help. Your partner might even tell you not to tell what’s going on, but that just might be so that he won’t get exposed. Many try to be strong on their own, but reaching out doesn’t make you weak. You are strong when you realize that you can’t do it alone. Ladies, love yourself!! God Loves You!!
