A large part of our healing success will come from our mindset. By that I do not mean that we have to constantly hold on to some sugar coated idea of positivity, far from it in fact. We do however have to cultivate a basic belief in and commitment to our healing.

Healing from abuse really is a journey. At times it is hard work, it can be frustrating, scary, cathartic, ecstatic, rage inducing, panic triggering. It can be all those things in the span of five minutes even. Above all, healing from abuse is worth your while.

Whoever tells you that abuse ends when the relationship ends is lying. But, luckily so is anyone who says that there is no hope. The journey through recovery and healing after abuse is a long and winding one. It can even feel like a never-ending one…

Honestly, I get frustrated sometime too. I rage at the injustice and the pain of yet another anxiety attack, I despair at finding yet another trigger or weep over yet another newly recovered memory. These instances become less frequent, but they seem to never truly disappear. The pain of abuse has changed us, forever. But remember that change doesn’t have to be a bad thing!

A large part of our healing success will come from our mindset. By that I do not mean that we have to constantly hold on to some sugar coated idea of positivity, far from it in fact. We do however have to cultivate a basic belief in and commitment to our healing. If we approach our journey with the mindset that we will be ‘forever broken’, then chances are that we will be forever broken. Yet, if we commit to a belief that we can build a life we love, then it will be hard to stop us!

    This is beautiful because I’m seeing it first hand. Dealing with the effects of the abuse and understanding that I’m important and I deserve to take care of myself is helping understand that I am important. As a wife and mother of three beautiful children, often I put myself last. Yet in seeing myself as important, I realize that caring for myself is not only needed and healthy but required.

    If I understand that I need to take care of me then I can more effectively take care of others around me. I will try every day to do something for me. Even if it’s giving myself a hug or telling myself I tried my best today, that is something for me.
