“Forgiveness. I forgave my husband and loved him the same. I cried and cried by myself because I needed that release and if I cried in front of him it brought up more bad/sad feelings from him about hurting me all over again. I began to do things for me to make me feel like a beautiful person again. This was to help my self esteem which was crushed. Walking, exercise the demons out and losing weight…”
“I felt so stupid and still at times do and it has been a little over a year since I found out. In the beginning I just wanted death his or mine it didn’t matter. The only thing that kept me going was my work as that is the only place I felt SAFE. My family also a HUGE help in supporting me and just letting me make my own decisions. I have NEVER felt so much pain or hatred in my life.”
