Your journey doesn't end when your relationship with abuse ends. There is more that happens and trauma that you still have to work through and overcome. My second book is about those trials and tribulations that I still have faced and may still be going through.
There is also a hotline number to call at any point if you are in a crisis mode or need help of any kind.
I get asked a lot about things that you can say to someone that is going through abuse, or how to help them process it. YOU NEED TO VALIDATE THEM AND THEIR FEELINGS. Below are some validating statements that you could use:
*You make a lot of sense.
*I understand why you feel that way.
*I want to understand your feelings, can you tell me more about that?
*That must have been really painful for you.
*What's that like for you?
*It makes sense that you would react the way you did, given that this brings up your fear of:
*Do you want to talk about how you're feeling?
*I admire your vulnerability.
*It's ok to feel what you're feeling right now.
