“Follow your gut. It often recognizes the red flags that your heart chooses to make excuses for.”

I escaped an abusive relationship. When it happened, I felt frightened because I thought he would come back. I was anxious because I became a single mother overnight. I was overwhelmed by emotions, guilt, and nightmares. I coped by finding small projects to work on around the house to keep my mind busy and to feel like I was in control of my life. My reaction to the situation was to get rid of anything that reminded me of him. I wanted to replace furniture, repaint the walls, and pretend like he never existed.

I had to put my life back together on my own since nobody knew about the abuse and even though I was struggling to heal, I had to find the strength to be a mother and move forward with my life. Follow your gut. It often recognizes the red flags that your heart chooses to make excuses for.
