Unhappy Divorced..ex was abusive..question about "How to know Yourself"


I am a newbie here. Been divorced now for almost 4 years. I was pretty much
brainwashed by him. How does one "Find out who the "Real" woman is?"
I have been questioning my own decisions, feelings, and right now stuck
as in getting motivated to go out alone and enjoy my own company? Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks, Lahayle55

Re: Divorced..ex was abusive..question about "How to know Yourself"

Welcome to the board! Its been four years divorced now and mentally abused (brainwashed). Have you talked to a theripist or someone? I would start there. Also to get away from any lonliness, try voluntaring somewhere. The others on the board will have more suggestions. Take care

Re: Divorced..ex was abusive..question about "How to know Yourself"

After my divorce, I was alone by myself for 4 years. I'd see my children maybe once a month (I was about 700 miles from them). It was hard at the beginning. But I grew up and I began enjoying myself...being by myself. I wasn't a total monk either. I had fun. But I liked it when I went back home. My silence. My house. My things. My thoughts. There's nothing wrong with that.
