Ways to Reclaim Yourself from Domestic Abuse

Reclaiming Yourself From Domestic Abuse

Space for Myself

Many of us have been in intimate relationships where we were betrayed and abused; some of us left after a few weeks or months, but many of us stayed for years, sometimes decades.  The longer we live with our abuser, the less we feel in contact with ourselves because the ground has constantly been shifting under us, and our abuser erodes our sense of self, and our self confidence.  To begin reclaiming ourselves, we need to spend some time each day alone feeding ourselves, without distraction, with something to allow us to be in ourselves.  I’ve put together some suggestions to get you started.

First, allow yourself to have some quiet by turning off the television, radio, I-pod, and phones.  Decide on the length of time you want to spend and stick to it, making it at least 15 minutes, then choose how to relax.
