When a woman goes through a heartbreak or an end to a relationship she may feel like it is the lowest point of her life. When a woman goes through heartbreak during and after an abusive relationship has ended she feels this way as well but it is amplified times ten. She may feel stupid, dumb, naive, or maybe even foolish for even partaking in the relationship itself. She may have seen signs coming for a while if she is in a normal and healthy relationship that the relationship itself was ending, but for a woman going through an abusive relationship, things may be a little different.
I’m here to tell you that you are not stupid, dumb, naive, nor foolish for loving a person correctly how you’re supposed to just because they won’t love you back the correct way in return. There is nothing wrong about actually loving someone.
