Hey all I'm recently out of an abusive relationship. Both emotional and physical. I brought it on myself by cheating on him a couple of times. And he would always bring it up, put me down and make me feel totally worthless. He kept me from talking and seeing my family and friends or even use the computer without his supervision cause he said I would just cheat on him again. I loved him and I just kept putting it off as he just loved me and was being protective of me. But near the end I knew he was cheating on me and whenever I asked him about what was going on he would always bring up me cheating on him. I became self destructive by beating myself and burning myself with cigarettes. He also beat me on a couple of occasions, two times sending me to work with a big black eye and cuts on my face. All the times he was extremely drunk. All the times he put his hands around my throat and threatened to kill me. He always went for the same spot on my head and I think he did some damage to it cause I get headaches there every now and again. I still love him and he is off with some girl which i know hes now abusing as he did me. But how can I move on after he caused me so much pain, after he put these mental and physical scars on me. How do I move on, Its been 6 months since we broke up and I'm still hurting on the inside. How can I move on?
