Leaving an abusive or toxic person is scary—not just because we don’t know what the future holds, but also because we know that we might end up missing them
When I joined the SwanWaters team, I looked into the shamanic meaning of the swan. This is what I wrote about my discoveries.
Now that I’d left, I couldn’t trust my decision-making ability because I’d clearly made such terrible ones while under my former abuser’s control.
Where we’ve felt like a failure or unable to follow through in the past, we can start setting goals for ourselves, and set the reward for reaching them.
