Despite what they may tell you…the Devil you know is rarely better than the one you don’t.
You can love something that gives you black eyes and broken feelings.
The hardest is when that damage comes from someone or something that should be protecting you.
I think, sometimes, we know our abusers better than we know our friends.
Regardless of the credentials they may boast, they cannot do what they’re doing to you. You have every right to stop them. You have every right to escape them, even if it is somewhat more complicated than just leaving. You have the right to begin the process of becoming free, at any time you choose, for any reason.
Begin your liberation.
