- You can heal.
- You can restore.
How about you? What do you need to hear the most?
It’s sad how desperately we struggle with the emotional pain caused by abuse. In fact, the emotional and psychological abuse from these people, whom I loved and trusted, did more damage to me than the physical abuse.
But I found a way to heal and restore, and so can you. It begins with surrounding yourself with people you trust. People who value you and your truth.
In the beginning, I didn’t know how to do this. I didn’t know who to trust, or what trust looked like. I kept thinking if I changed the abusive people around me they would eventually see my worth and apologize for what they had done to me. Then they would hold me, support me, and encourage me.
Of course, this never happened. Abusive people don’t suddenly wake up one day and see your value. It doesn’t work that way.
Instead, I had to do something that’s really hard for abuse survivors. I had to cut all the toxic people out of my life. Yikes! But it’s the best thing you can do for yourself and your healing.
Toxic people may never change. It’s not your responsibility to heal them. And you can’t heal yourself when surrounded by toxic people. They’re incapable of supporting you or telling you the things you need to hear.
Your only responsibility is to do what’s healthy for YOU. That means surrounding yourself with good people who validate your worth, understand you, and support your healing journey. They’re the only ones who can cheer you on and say the things you need to hear the most, over and over again. Best of all, they mean those things. They truly care.
That’s how I healed myself. I didn’t need fixing, and neither do you. You just need validation and acceptance. Cut all the toxic people out of your life. Surround yourself with good, caring, supportive people. Then you can heal yourself.
