Main Take-Aways

  • You’re allowed to be angry. But then it’s important to move on to the next step.
  • When you’re in an abusive situation, the reality is that everything is about them. Your normal was that nothing was ever about you
  • In your healing process, it’s important to gently say to yourself, “That was then and this is now. It’s about me now.”
  • After leaving abuse (and because it’s about you now), you can focus on learning new skills about boundaries, self-care, and improving your self-talk

While I may technically be the Director here at SwanWaters, my unofficial title is Healing Cheerleader! I’m a survivor of childhood emotional abuse and workplace bullying.

I firmly believe that we can undo some of the damage that abuse has done to us, and learn the necessary skills to handle life and all it brings us.
