It’s taken me eight months
Eight months to relax and realize that it’s ok now
To let people back into my life
Hardly anyone knew I’d left my abusive husband
Eight months ago
Hardly anyone knew that I’d silently crept back (moved back to my home town)
I’m so used to being ashamed of my failures. The marriage was long dead, but I felt as if I failed as a mother. And that was all that has ever mattered to me.
So… I’m slowly but surely letting those who I matter to, know that I’m still alive again…
