Having a hard time moving on after an emotionally and verbally abusive relationship, even though its almost been a year.
I find that every time i try to start a new relationship, old memories pop into my mind about my old relationship and i get scared. I have this compulsion to tell my new bf what happened to me, and i know that is not a healthy way to enter a new relationship. I want to live more in the present than the past. Yet, I just cant help shake the fear, and sadness, knowing that someone out there would like me to drop of the face of the earth (if he could manage it…)
I was wondering if there are other people out there that have been abused (short or long term), and how they got over it? or i guess, just dont let it get in the way of their lives now? Is it healthy to talk about it in a new relationship? I have met a really nice guy, and i told him about my ex after we had been seeing each other for a couple weeks. It didn’t change anything between us, but telling him brought up all those feelings again and have sent me back into that dark place… i hate the power he still has over my mind, i just cant stand it anymore! i want to erase my memories and start over but of course i have to try to live with this.. please, can anyone help?
