Day 2 – Respect

Today I remind myself of the need for self-respect, self-love. I lost it all. When I look at my other relationships and friendships with friends and family I can't think of a single person that I have to always initiate contact with. It's reciprocal. It's effortless. But with 'him', I always have to initiate. Over time, that slowly wore away at my self-respect until I felt worthless.

Day 1 – uncertainty

Today I feel...unsure. Should I be writing this? Isn't the aim to move away from him? Won't writing about him, even if not directly, somehow put him front and center in my thoughts? I'm absolutely 100% certain on something though: and that's that I need to move on. I need to be done. I'm just unsure of what that looks like right now.
