#TW ---- Abuse
Your abusive spouse may love you. They, more often than not, are loving you in a way that they know-how. If they saw daddy beat, mama, that is what they relate to love. If you are currently in an abusive relationship, it's essential to know that it isn't your fault. The abuse stems from childhood demons and generational trauma. Set healthy boundaries with your partner and assist them with seeking therapy if they're willing.
However, if they aren't, it is not your job to change them. Pack your bags, and head for the door. If children are involved, it is your job to show them what a healthy relationship looks like, even if that healthy relationship is with yourself. ✨✨✨ - 22 minutes ago
