WHAT DO YOU SEE WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR?
Are you dancing on eggshells – backwards – in high heels?
Stuffing your emotions so you won’t make waves?
Trying to speak without opening your mouth?
I know all about it.
For 40 years I stayed in a relationship with someone suffering with Borderline Personality disorder.
If you don’t know what Borderline is, it’s like living with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Dr. Jekyll is the charming, nice and irresistible half – and the horrendous one is Mr. Hyde.
But Mr. Hyde doesn’t hide. He just pops out of the woodwork any time of day or night, when you least expect it. So you can never relax. Ever.
You never know when the other shoe will drop.
Because it will drop, and it will always be your fault.
I was one of the lucky ones who made it out alive.
My late husband is no longer here, so I finally got up the courage to talk about it. Though I loved him dearly, it was a very hard road to hoe and I had no one to help me… until I opened my mouth and asked for help. You may be in a similar situation and need to know you are not alone – and there are things that can help in spite of the confusion and pain.
It was a miracle I survived – and I don’t want you to suffer as long as I did.
We are only as sick as our secrets.
If you are suffering, don’t wait as long as I did to ask for help.
I was finally able to pull out the crap that was inside of me and look at it.
And you know what? Bringing it out into the open made me see I wasn’t as bad a person as I thought everyone would think I was (if I ‘told’).
But if you’re where I was, ‘they’ don’t want you to tell.
Are you being abused, physically emotionally or verbally?
What do you FEAR will happen if you DO tell?
They want you to think it’s your fault they get angry.
But someone else’s anger is not your fault.
Just don’t lose your cool, too.
Especially if you are in danger.
What will happen if things stay the way they are?
Will you continue being a doormat? Or a statistic?
Don’t wait. If you are being abused, get help here.
If you are not in danger, there’s still hope to improve your relationship.
