The Vicious Cycle

I have given eight years of my life for someone I don’t even like, who harmed me in my childhood, which affected my self-esteem for life, who continues to bring harm to me, and affect my life.


Today I acknowledge the lack of autonomy in my life, and the anger and depression because of it. I can’t change the situation, but I can change how I react to it. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

You are not stuck
by: Gina

Why do you believe you can't change your situation? Are you financially dependent on this person? Maybe you are co-dependent? Maybe you think they can't live without you?

Maybe it's time to get financial assistance so that you can be your own person before you are completely incapacitated by depression. You will never know if you don't try.

Take it one baby step at a time and don't tell the person you are caring for until you have a plan in place. This way they can't manipulate you or grind you down further. You can do it. You must do it for your own sanity.

Walk away.
by: Anonymous

There comes a time to walk away from it. You owe that person who has been nasty towards you your whole life NOTHING.
