Living eight years being verbally, emotionally, and physically abused poisoned not only my life, but also the lives of my children. I’m ashamed to admit this toxic relationship was harmful to my children’s mental health causing issues such as, anxiety and depression. It’s been fours years since the toxicity has ended, and we’re still living with the ramifications of this toxic relationship.
Having a relationship with a childhood “friend” sounds like a fairytale right? Well, maybe for some it is, but for me it was a nightmare.
