3 things after 2 days of hell.

What version of hell you ask?Reliving 20 years of emotional abuse on the witness stand over a 2 day period and knowing you would never be able to say all the things that needed to be said. 20 years you hid, denied, explained away, enabled. 20 years you thought you were crazy. So my 3 things of gratitude today are that I finally had the courage to leave; I am grateful that I truly stood up for myself for the first time in 20 years in that court room, no matter the outcome. After all, it’s the legal system not the justice system. I am grateful to finally be able to start a new chapter in my life after a divorce that took 2.5 years, to live for me, to get to know me again. #choosejoy #3things #gratitude
