😃 I expected to be immediately happy when I left my abusive situation. When I found out that I was filled with sadness, anger, and confusion I felt disappointed. The little things made me smile at first - being able to talk to my friends again, being able to talk to strangers again (which I didn't even realize how much I missed), being able to watch YouTube videos made me happy - while I was with her the only thing I could use my phone for without being a "hoe" was to talk to my mom, and even then I would have to announce first that's what I was doing. Even though happiness didn't come right away and even though I still feel the emotions and after effects of trauma, I have a underlying sense of PEACE and I AM SO HAPPY to have the freedom of choice now and to be able to enjoy my life the way I want. 💜💙💖 Repost from @amie.214__ If you are still reading, thank you.. leave a comment below something that makes you happy that you are able to do now that you were not able to do while with your abuser!
