I will admit, the first few months of separation were difficult. My daughter was having a hard time with everything that had changed and I was struggling to open up to those I trust. It’s hard to speak about things that you buried because you had been made to believe that everything was all your fault.
What makes it even more difficult is the fact that I don’t like to place blame on others. I am my own person and have the ability to make my own choices. That thought is what I struggled with the most. Why did I choose to stay?
I see the good in everyone. I did see the good in him but most of his “good” acts were yet another way to manipulate me or others around him.
So here I am, nearly three months into recovery and I am finally at a place where I am ready to heal. To see it all for what it was and move on.
Right now my main focus is on Emma. You will see me posting lots of pictures of her and I playing. These photos are memories that we never had a chance to make while in that home. It’s time for us both to learn what life should be. It is time for her to be a child and play.
To all of you reading, I hope you are living your best life. If you are like me and starting over, I hope you find the strength you need to work through what you need to. I hope you are able to find support and people you trust. You deserve happiness. Have a blessed day. ❤️ 🫂 ❤️
This is Me –
All our best and love
