Another one of my all-time favorite quotes...no matter how broken, bruised, ruined, done, and over we feel, it is never the end - unless we give up. Stay strong my dear friends. 💜  What is something that has helped you this week? .

Keep going. Healing can feel *so* slow - and then you look back and realize how far you’ve come. You just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other. .

Trusting oneself after trauma is one of the hardest things to face. When someone has violated your trust, the questions of "What is wrong with me?" are inevitable. They're difficult - but let me often encourage you to face those, and do your very best to start trusting yourself again if you do not already - you do know more than you think. .

To those currently in abusive relationships - I know how hard it is to break away. But you deserve so much more than to be looking over your shoulder afraid of the person who is supposed to watch out for you and take care of you. Few understand how difficult it is to leave an abusive relationship - but it is beyond worth it.

Words like "success" and "failure" mean little in the grand scheme of recovery. The courage to keep getting up each day is what matters.
