It's not easy healing from a toxic relationship that has damaged your self esteem.
Getting involved in a bad relationship is something that a lot of people go through at one time or another. Sometimes, though, people have to endure mental abuse from their partners, which can have a negative effect on them that lasts a lifetime.
It can be tough for you to bounce back from the mental abuse you had to endure and your self-esteem suffers greatly because of it. The mental abuse you were put through is usually an attack by your partner to make you feel worthless and insecure.
The partner does it to gain control and boost his or her own ego (yes, women can be abusive, too). They want you to have low self-esteem so you won’t think for yourself. Getting out of a relationship like that is the first step you need to take in order to save your own sanity.
There are other things you’ll need to do to bounce back from the mental abuse when healing from a toxic relationship. It’s important to stay active. Get out and do things with your family and friends, because an abuser loves to alienate you from your loved ones.
Don’t be afraid to seek some professional help. A professional can help you work through your feelings and help you build your self-esteem back up. Don’t let a bad relationship break your spirit.
