Leaving Mr. or Ms. Abuser
So you have decided to do it or for whatever reason you are out!
If you had time to plan your big leap great!
If you didn't and are out of the house and wonder how to get your things from the bum think about this.
Your alive! THINGS can be REPLACED! Staying in a toxic relationship because you have property that you are fixing up together or selling or because you will be damned if you leave first is stupid!
Get your head out of your butt!
There is no price tag on your life or the lives of your child or pets.
I ended up selling or throwing out the things I did manage to get back from Rob because of the memories attached. The things that he broke or sold instead of giving them back to me after time I realized I really didn't need them.
Check out my Checklist for leaving your abuser entry if you have time to plan.
There is never a good time to leave a relationship. But there is never a bad time to leave a toxic abusive relationship!
