  1. If you could find the book “the pursuit of happiness” by Jennifer o Neil (I believe) on amazon, I think it would be a great read for you. It’s 2.99 for the kindle edition I believe. The book has helped myself in many ways. You’re in my thoughts and I am sending positive thoughts your way.


      • Yeah I have. I’m getting better everyday. Leaving a relationship abusive or not is difficult. I have noticed a huge change in the way I feel about myself since leaving. I learn something new everyday about how I used to think being skewed by my ex. I hope you find the strength to choose what is best for you, whatever it may be.


        • No, the decision is made. It’s the living situation (and some financial) that has to be worked out. Until then he’s still here. I went through hell last night with him, but I truly believe that everyone’s prayers and well-wishes kept me calm. I have never been able to handle one of his tantrums like I did last night. I stayed calm and tried not to let the things he said affect me. I barely cried.


  2. Thank you for sharing this Joy! I really needed to read this. I had to let go of a friend that I became codependent with, which, is what I am recovering from. So as hard as it was I know I can’t stress my body for someone that never gives back. It’s so sad and hard even when you know it’s wrong. Xoxo
