  • Stay strong. You don't want to waste any more of your life on someone who hurts you. YOU CAN DO THIS...many of us know exactly what you are going thru..we know there is a good life after you rid yourself of people who hurt you.

  • I don't know your story, but if this man was abusive, then you need to follow through with this. Even if you still love him, you need to protect yourself and your child. Things can get better, take one step at a time, and this is the first step.

  • You're doing the right thing. This is the hardest step and the first one to severing those feelings. Just remember you aren't the only one.

  • This is a step towards your new life. You are a good person who needs to be taken care of not hurt. He is not the person to do that for you. You know this and you have to take this step so that you can have everything that you deserve. Be strong!!!! Keep remembering what he has done to you and that you are going to be rid of that.

  • It's ok to love him. You just have to know and follow through on what is right, safe and best for your family. You know you are doing the right thing and it is unfortunate it has come to this but you will be stronger for it.

  • You're doing the right thing. I know it's hard but you have to protect yourself and your kids. I totally know where you're coming from. You can't shut your feelings off and it sucks but be strong for yourself and your kids. You all deserve better than him.
