37. "Why am I so stupid?" Stop saying this today

Episode #37

When you leave a toxic, abusive relationship, the first thing that you say, the first thing that comes out of your mouth is why am I so stupid?

And it hurts when you say these words because you feel that you were stupid. You feel like you were lied to and you fell for it, but let me tell you, it is not your fault. You were not stupid. You failed to realize certain characteristics and traits in somebody else because they were familiar to you. You are being a person that is empathic, A person that loves totally and holds heartedly would not have understood the type of person that you were getting involved with until you actually learn to know these types of people. It is not easy to recognize abusive behaviors in a relationship because it takes time for them to build-up to the abuse. By the time you start falling into the abuse side of it, you're already so deep into it that it's not easy to recognize.
