It's hard, but you can do it.

You can leave

by edengracet

I used to think I couldn't leave my toxic relationship

I thought that no one would love me again if I left you. So I spent years in a relationship​ where I spent everyday in fear, and pain.

Then I looked around and I realized I had two choices​

Die, or leave. I had been dying throughout the course of our relationship. So I packed up and left, hoping that you wouldn't notice, and try to find me.

I had left, and now I was lost

I didn't know who to be without you

Then I started to tell my story

I started writing about our relationship. At first, no one noticed, and then I started getting messages about women and men who had gone through the exact same thing.

Now I know that I am not just the girl you pushed around

I am a woman who has gone through a lot, but is getting better. I am strong. I am better than you. And most of all, I inspire.

And you don't get to take that from me.

It's a cruel would where one's hunger for love can leave you in a place where you should not be but you are too scared to be set free just in case there is no more love for me

This was amazing, you truly do inspire. You never know who is going through the same thing as you are, and sharing it with the world helps so much... Also wonderfully written poem, and the gifs were also unique and beautiful! Keep up the amazing work!

Good for you there is no excuse for any so called man to push woman around or make them feel like we're not worthy because guess what your worth so much and I hope and pray to God that find that one man out there if you haven't already that can appreciate you for who you are and instead of trying to bring you down he makes you feel like your beauty is the most amazing thing to him and he feels so lucky to be with you because that is how our significant other should make us feel like our beauty and our mind and what we think matters. Best wishes and thank you for sharing your story your very brave for that and I'm so glad you got out when you did and you can close the chapter of your life.

There's a reason why that cliche "that which does not kill me makes me stronger.." In reality that which kills us makes us stronger. It's interesting how lately everything resembles the hero's journey to me.. If you haven't had a chance to watch this video by Matthew Winkler, https://youtu.be/Hhk4N9A0... - it's worth checking out! ..this captures the essence of Joseph Campbell's message. Only by facing our fears can we get what we want out of life, and in that process we're transformed, where nothing is ever really the same again.

@bernardtwindwil Fear was definitely a huge reason why I stuck it out in that relationship for so long. I'm just trying to show people that it's possible to leave.

I think the fear of being alone is a huge impediment to leaving. The abuser usually brainwashes their victims into thinking that they are nothing without them. Thanks to people like you, people in an abusive relationship can see that it is possible to escape and prosper. This was also very well written. I salute you and your valor.
