Hi everyone!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I found After Silence today, and I'm so glad to be here. I left an 8-year emotionally abusive relationship at the end of February and am working on coping with everything that comes along with that. From the bit of time I've spent looking around, this seems like a great place.

Hi, Madeline. I am so sorry to hear about your recent relationship. Emotional abuse can be just as bad and hard. Words can hurt just as much and last perhaps at times within someone even longer. You are brave and strong leaving the situation that was causing what seems like prolonged negative effects. It is not always easy changing what may be used to. That does not mean that change isn't for the best. There truly is so much to try figuring out and there's never really a general blueprint. That can make it seem even more overwhelming. Please be assured that you have found a community of gentle souls who in general may be able to relate and understand. My hope is that this brings you some sense of comfort and peace during this trying time.

Reach out to me anytime you wish, via messenger on here. I think you and I are basically in the exact same situation, and can relay lots back and forth to each other, and support each other. 

So glad you're free of your abusive ex.
