Abuse makes us believe that there is nothing or noone better for us. This comes from a lack of confidence and self esteem and is never true. We all deserve to be treated equally and with respect. Rebuilding your self esteem enables you to see your self worth and with this see how abuse affects you in many ways. Abuse will not be tolerated. Abuse is never ok. Abuse is never your fault. You can with support learn to believe this and in time learn to believe in yourself. You are always worth it.
