5 Tips on Healing from Abuse


Healing from abuse is a difficult and complex process, but it is possible to recover and move forward with life. Here are some tips that can help: 1. Don't be afraid to seek professional help: It's important to work with a therapist or counselor who has experience in treating survivors of abuse. They can help you process your emotions and develop coping strategies to deal with triggers and symptoms. 2. You matter, so practice self-care: This includes taking care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. This can include things like exercise, healthy eating, getting enough sleep, meditation, and spending time with loved ones. 3. Don't go at it alone. Build a support network: Surround yourself with people who love and support you. This can include friends, family, and support groups for survivors of abuse. 4. Set healthy boundaries: Learning to set and maintain healthy boundaries is essential to healing from abuse. This can include saying no to things that don't serve you, avoiding triggers, and communicating your needs clearly to others. 5. You MUST practice forgiveness: Forgiveness does not mean excusing the abuse or letting the abuser off the hook. It's about releasing yourself from the anger and bitterness that can hold you back from healing. Remember, healing from abuse is a journey and there is no timeline for recovery. Be patient with yourself, celebrate your progress, and remember that you are not alone. God is always with you until the bittersweet end!

"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." - Isaiah 41:10 NKJV

I love y'all!
