#3. – Feeling More Balanced Emotionally

The constant battle in an abusive relationship is the one where you assess your every move before making it to determine what the consequences of that move might be. Right down to deciding what you will make for dinner, each event in the normal course of life becomes an emotional tug of war that drains your energy and controls your thoughts.

By going No Contact, I blocked his ability to turn me inside out emotionally on a dime.

I could choose when and if I read and responded to his communications and even had someone else read them and decide for me if there was anything to respond to.

So while No Contact brought out the crazy in him full force, it surely brought out the emotional balance in me.

I survived a quarter century of psychological, emotional, economic and sexual abuse. When I got out, I vowed to help others do the same and founded the Emotional Abuse Survivors Network project in 2012. Now, I offer hope and healing to others on their journey as they rediscover themselves. My forthcoming books, Bodies in the Basement and Define Winning, chronicle my experiences, escape, and recovery. There is nothing so special about me that others can't emerge and thrive.
