I know others have *not* been kind to you. I can see you are not being kind to yourself right now…You mistake how love works. You think you deserve to be punished. You think you deserve to be hurt.
Let me reassure you: You didn’t deserve his assaulting then or ever. Try believe this hon. That was not love. That was a lie, an injustice.
Try, just try be kind to you. This is one way to reclaim your dignity.
Don’t let the past abuser still torment you today.
Live kindly to yourself and know the more you do, the more you will heal. ❤️
