What is the most traumatic when we leave a toxic relationship? #stayorleave

I did not expect that. I thought that leaving an abusive relationship was hard enough. I was unaware of the hurdles I would have to face after leaving hell.

I mustered all my courage to talk about what happened, but I was not supported. Worse, I had the feeling that people in charge of protecting citizens were actually doubting my words. This was such a shock.

While I was aware that the abuser was thrilled to destroy me, I had never expected that I would be so abandoned after leaving the toxic relationship.

I am not going to advise you to stay with a perpetrator of course. I want to give you the strength of knowing that it is possible to be mocked or not believed even when you do the most difficult thing in the world after leaving the abuse: talking about it.
