I'm over my abusive ex – but not his physical and emotional abuse

DEAR DEIDRE: I AM over my abusive ex but not what I went through.

I’m a 36-year-old woman. I was in a physically and emotionally abusive relationship for ten years but eventually got away from him.

That was three years ago. But even now, I am forever putting myself down.

I don’t feel good about myself and can’t let myself be happy. My mental health has taken a massive hit.

I’m down all the time. I do try to put on a good front but deep down I feel like I’m going to break.

Now I’m worried my insecurities will ruin my new relationship.

DEIDRE SAYS: Be thankful you are free – all down to your own efforts. That took a lot of strength.

Now it is time to channel your courage into healing and getting back to being happy and healthy.

It could help to talk to a counsellor and my support pack on Counselling explains how it works.

Confide in your new partner about your fears rather than shutting him out.

If this guy is genuine, he will support you.
