I had a bit of an awakening the other day. I gave myself permission to not be friends with my abuser.
I know why I tried to. My heart was in the right place. But I don’t have to put on a brave face any longer. I don’t have to wince every time I hear my abuser be praised. I don’t have to think..if they only knew..any longer. I don’t have to feel hurt that I was never given an apology let alone the decency of respect for my place in their life. I don’t have to be friends with my abuser any longer. I don’t have to be nice to him and ignore how I’m treated by him. Ignore the below the belt words. Ignore the speaking badly about me to people I love. I’m free. Free at last…free at last. You get no more space inside my head. I don’t have to be friends with you any longer. 🙂
Oh and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are now officially our new President elect and Vice President elect. We did that. ♥️🇺🇸
