After just going on a rant about my bastard EX-stepfather, I just want to say this to EVERYBODY. If you think you aren't strong enough to leave an abusive relationship & stand on your own, that's a LIE. A lie intended to keep you psychologically under the control of an abuser. YOU ARE AMAZING & AWESOME, AND STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW. And I ❤ every single one of you. There's help out there for all of you. You're not alone.
