Why do I say to my son that I have #noregrets about having lived with an abusive man?

Why do I say to my son that I have #noregrets about having lived with an abusive man?

I don’t want my son to feel bad thinking I went through hell when I was living with his father. I have no regrets because abuse taught me a very important lesson: I am 100% responsible for my life.

I am blessed to have given birth to my daughter and to my son. Pain lasts if we choose to let it last longer. Violence towards the kids can happen only when I choose to ignore it. I gathered my last strengths to escape the toxic relationship I was trapped in. My aim was to protect my children more than staying alive myself.

I have no regrets. I am proud to have escaped. I am grateful to be alive. Every second of my life is a gift and a blessing.

I learned that nobody could have any power over me unless I gave them such power. I am in charge of my life.

No regrets. Even more so if my story can help women to avoid falling into the trap of codependency, manipulation and abuse.
