It is never too late to seek assistance in your recovery from emotional abuse. Never think that you cannot just walk away from the abuse and begin a new, healthier life. This transformation is unlikely to occur overnight, or even in a relatively short time, but it can happen. It can happen through the support of your friends and family, as well as commitment and effort on your part. Take responsibility for your life and beginning rebuilding.
Emotional abuse is particularly insidious because it tears down the very fabric of your worth as a person. You are not allowed to grow and develop to your full potential. You were denied to use your capabilities and talents to their fullest. You probably felt stuck in time, without any vision of the future. But you’ve decided to take steps toward healing and recovery.
It’s not easy to do this alone, so seek out close and trusted friends and family. Being able to confide in someone will help. You can describe what happened to you and they may be able to give you help and advice, but remember it is you that is ultimately going to make the change.
Because of the emotion abuse, it is likely you’ve lost a sense of your true personality and emotional well being. You can regain this by doing those activities that you loved that you may have been prevented from engaging in. Community service, meditation, sports and participating in other activities will start to help you build your confidence and self-esteem.
You need to start believing in yourself and how you are back in control and on the road to recovery. You can do this by thinking positively.
Using these steps, you will soon discover yourself feeling better about yourself and on the road to well being and recovery
