From a comment below:
“The journey of a 1,000 miles goes step by step and starts with the first step, everything else remains locked in your imagination.”
Recovering from abuse is just like that, you take each step one at a time and you don’t really know where the journey will lead you, but it is your journey and your decisions that guide you. The important thing is not where your particular journey takes you, but that you are willing to start it.
