Build Yourself A Bridge

Yesterday, I became amazed by how many of us have been through the cycle of pain and abuse. After reading many blogs, this following memory came to mind.

When I first started dating my husband, I said to him, "Treat me like shit and I know how to act. Treat me like a queen and I freak."

Know this...Today, I am the queen and will never again except being treated like shit.

To anyone who thinks that they deserve to be unhappy...get help. You are not alone. Empower yourself. You are the only one that can break the cycle. I'm sending out hugs and kisses to you all.

"Build yourself a bridge."

Thank you...what an inspirational post. I agree that once you believe in yourself you can have a relationship where there is mutual respect, love, and true intimacy. So happy you have that.

It breaks my heart when I come across women (and I do, all the time) that just take it when they're treated badly. I agree that there are a lot of abuse survivors out there... I always find myself wishing I could do something, but a lot of times, it is about the victim doing something.

49AK- I just hate the term "victim". It implies, that we as woman have no control over the situtations that cause the pain and suffering. I perfer to call myself a survivor. You are only a "victim" when you continue to allow yourself to be abused. Thank you so much for your comment.
