I love this. Self care is the best care! I was in a marriage where my spouse had checked out. It really takes some time to process everything when it’s all said and done. You feel guilty for staying, guilty for allowing someone to treat you in a way that is so cold and callous. Emotional abuse is worse than physical abuse. At least you see scars (and so can the world) along with feeling the pain as you attempt to heal. Emotional abuse is worse. Scars are internal. There are no marks or bruises for anyone to see. Unlike physical abuse, there are no marks or broken bones visible for the naked eye to see. There’s only emotional scars and more gas lighting, which prevents healing. Emotional abuse is the worst abuse. It hurts longer. Sometimes forever.
