Love doesn’t cause pain. People with painful behavior cause pain. If you can learn the warning signs of painful/problematic people you can protect yourself. You need to take some time to really get to know yourself. Who you are and your deal breakers. Figuring those things out will really enlighten you and help you towards recognizing real love.
My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.
Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.
It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.
