Still histrionic, still a bookwhore; just faking competence because of my kid.
i've choked on my words for far too long
It's not the length of life, but the depth.
This is my mind, it’s not supposed to make sense.

You remind yourself however you need to. You DON’T deserve that and don’t you dare go back.
Thank you dear!
Fellow boy mom to boy mom..going back will teach your son that it is acceptable to treat a woman like this. “If hitting my mom is okay then hitting you is okay..”. Don’t let this cycle grow legs. Both you and your son deserve a real man. And real men don’t hit, swing, slap, kick, berate, spit… nothing. Real men show respect despite alcohol, conflict, or outside stresses. Find a real man…you are worth it.
So is your son. XOXO ..and an extra big hug (without squishing your pretty but bruised face)
Thanks dear. Any idea where to find a real man?? I have absolutely no luck when it comes to finding them.
I also don’t want my son to feel he has to protect me from a man. He is only 12, and still a child, and doesn’t need to be put in that situation. I won’t do that to him. 🙂
That’s my girl…. :). Hang in there, you will be OK. Even more than OK once he is out of your system.
I wish there was some sort of a purge you could do to rid yourself of toxic men. I am guessing it would require alcoholic beverages, pedicures, and voodoo dolls!! 😉
cordelia nailed it!
I NEVER want my son to have to see any fit The Cowboy might throw, so I won’t be taking him back. It was his 3rd strike, and he’s out.
Not much I can add there. You don’t deserve that & you have done the right thing for everyone by leaving.
Stay strong. You deserve so much better.
Good for you! I frequently look at my pics as well to remember the exact same thing. Survive!
Yes, I will keep looking at them, and until the pain goes away, I will also keep pushing on the spot on face, and the places on my neck, as reminders also.
Ohmygosh! Bless you and the strength you show.
I don’t feel very strong. I just fake it well. 😉
To share your story, post pictures and reminding yourself that you are better than that treatment is strength. Your strength is the kind that changes generations for the better. You are amazing!
Thanks so much for your kind words. 🙂

You keep posting them as long as you need to!! A picture speaks a thousand words…this one will speak a thousand reminders!!
You’re sounding strong, lady. Keep on keepin’ on. XX
Not feeling so strong tonight. Just feeling lonely.
