This month is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and I’ve shared signs of abuse in previous episodes, so in today’s podcast I’m sharing how to heal after leaving a toxic relationship. Self-care is crucial after experiencing abuse, as it can help survivors heal, regain their sense of self-worth, and rebuild their lives.
So I was a speaker at the Trauma to Triumph panel earlier this year and now is the perfect time to share the conversation. My portion was about self-care after abuse. Engage in self-care activities that make you feel good and promote your physical and emotional well-being. This might include exercise, meditation, yoga, journaling, reading, or creative hobbies.
Listen in as I share some affirmations, some tools that you can use to heal, journal prompts, and the plethora of emotions I experienced after leaving an emotionally abusive relationship. I also explain the difference between self-care and self-love!
