You can handle it. You handle pain and discomfort all the time, unfortunately, but you are resilient! Have a goal moving out in a couple years and keep working toward that goal. Reading is a great escape from reality, and writing is a great way to process abuse. Hang in there, because it gets a lot better. Remember, it's not your fault! But take responsibility, nonetheless, for your own peace of mind and body. Step up to the challenge of making happiness.
Thank you so much. I really needed this. I’m doing my best and will continue to do so (:
That's the sprit!
I’m sorry you are having to put up with that. I suggest you start looking at ways to communicate boundaries clearly. Look at assertive and non violent communication (NVC). If you can learn to have better boundaries it will help protect you somewhat but obviously their abusive behaviour is not your fault or responsibility. Protecting yourself is important though, until you can get away.
Thank you so much. I really appreciate that
