So true. Unfortunately they leave us so drained, and bewildered, and confused…it’s no wonder so many women have consecutive relationships with abusive men. I had no concept of self care for years, and years, and years. I think because I had no sense of self.

I arrived at self-care through the backdoor of mandatory inpatient treatment. Thank god for therapists. I never would have figured it out on my own. ☺

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
