I am a mystery to many people

I am a mystery to many people, who think that abuse is something you just “get over.” Haha…..yeah sure….

I have heard that term, time and time again, from people who have never been through it.

People that know nothing about abuse, have so much bad advice for those of us who have been through it.

That would be nice, to have the luxury, of just “getting over” something, that is not easy, to move past from. I don’t think it is something you “get over”, but you just “get through” it.

I am on a long road back, from the pain of abuse.

I was “hidden” from the rest of the world for so long, by fear, inflicted by my abuser husband, who had power and a gun.

Leaving him was the best thing I could do, and the scariest as well.
