A glass half full

Hippo time… Wallowing in self pity is ok, maybe for an hour or a day but no more.

We aren’t hippos! We don’t wallow. We survive.

If you’re reading this, you are either a survivor looking back, a survivor looking for support or someone wanting to help a survivor.

Whichever it is, listen carefully. You can be holding a glass of water, be it half empty or half full, it isn’t the weight of the glass of water that will tire you out. It’s the length of time you hold onto it. Let it go, let that glass smash, let the water all spill out. That water represents the old you, trickling away to make room for the new you.

We are all entitled to a down day, a day where were miserable, short tempered of teary but leave it there. Have you down day and move on.

Once your out and you’ve stood up to the abuser you have to focus on the next chapter. Try not to dwell on the past because when your looking back all the time you’ll trip and hurt yourself.

Today I realised I don’t care where this new relationship is going or isn’t going, but what I do care for is that I’m happy. I’m laughing again which I thought I’d forgotten how to do

Please try and be a glass half full kind of person, life is a privilege, make the bloody most of it!
