    Brenda this is sad and you have so openly expressed yourself. You have come a long way and I am happy that you had the courage to stand up for yourself. I can relate well and so many others unfortunately don't find the strength to escape such control. You have found happiness. Thank you for sharing and added to my favorite. All the very best and warm hugs to you

      Dagmar, thank you so much. I'm definitely in a better place now, it takes that time away from a toxic relationship to really see the damage and your own part in it. Hugs my friend-

    So powerful. So strong whilst so sad. Your write is an inspiration for as all. I could feel the message being told here and it was truly beautiful.

    This is great. The strength to leave those places behind. To have the power to realise that the clawing, digging and scratching doesn’t always help and can just serve to keep us in those holes. To take back control. Very inspirational.

      Thank you so much! Taking back my control was the best thing I could have done. Finally achieved the peace I was seeking.

    A brave and inspirational piece that will touch anyone who has either been through or is going through a toxic relationship. It's a measure of your strength that you broke free and found happiness again. A really well deserved nomination. Hugs Milly x

      Thank you so much Milly! I feel very grateful and blessed that I no longer am with this person. Its wonderful to be in an actual relationship that we treat each other with love and respect. Hugs you-

    I love this. You could have written it for me. To be able to walk free, taking in the air, not the mud. I appreciate how reading this made me feel. Great write. Thank you.

      Catherine I am so happy this made you feel that way. It truly was a freeing moment when I walked away from this. I really started living again.

    This is so inspirational, I can’t explain how much support from my heart I have for you.. Expressing what you’ve been through, and how you overcame yourself shows how strong you are. This is a powerful poem, and you are a powerful woman!!
