But, What About All The Hurt?

What do we do about all the hurt when in or after having left toxic relationships. We feel it. We don’t run from it. We work through it. We tell our story over and over as many times as we need to so we get back to the reality that we are not fatally flawed, needy, demanding people. We do not crumble under our pain and go back to abuse. We do not accept fake apologies, we ignore all attempts of theirs to get in touch with us for unimportant reasons. We block them. We feel our pain. We unravel our confusion. We stay away from them. We protect ourselves. We no longer give them our time, our love or attention because they don’t deserve it. We love ourselves enough to never let them close enough to hurt us again. We ignore their attempts to guilt us, their false promises and their covert attempts to bully us into their web of manipulation. We deal with our hurt, not with them. The hurt eventually goes away, but they will never change.
