Today, I’ll be addressing the question of how to rediscover yourself after leaving an abusive relationship. Let’s first understand what it means to find yourself. Is it about searching for new activities, pursuing another relationship, engaging in hobbies, traveling the world, or being adventurous? While these elements may play a part, finding yourself isn’t about discovering something external; rather, it’s about shedding the layers of emotional baggage that aren’t truly you.

You are already yourself; it’s about removing the influences that have clouded your true essence. This involves releasing negative beliefs and behaviors picked up from the abusive relationship and your environment. Perhaps you’ve absorbed feelings of unworthiness, a lack of confidence, low self-esteem, or the notion that you’re destined for suffering. Finding yourself is a process of recognizing and removing these layers that have accumulated over time.

To understand better, imagine yourself as a house. When the house was young, it was clean, with fresh air and good paint. Over time, it accumulated dust and negativity due to various experiences. Finding yourself is similar to cleaning that house — removing the debris, clearing out the trash hidden under the carpet, and washing it thoroughly. By doing so, you uncover the person you truly are, realizing that your essence was clouded by your past negative experiences.

Finding yourself is not a superficial thing like repainting the walls or showcasing on social media; it’s an internal process. You achieve it by processing your emotions, going inward, and confronting the negative beliefs you’ve adopted about yourself and relationships. It’s a journey of self-discovery where you challenge those false beliefs, boost your self-esteem, and regain confidence.

It’s like cleaning your house by cleansing your insides removing the baggage, shedding false identities, and addressing learned behaviors from the past. As you deal with these elements, you’ll feel a sense of lightness and freshness. It’s about letting go of the past, releasing emotional burdens, and experiencing a newfound freedom.

It’s a personal journey that goes beyond what others perceive or how you currently perceive yourself. Once you’ve processed your emotions, shed the past, and confronted negative beliefs, you’ll feel lighter, more genuine, and ready to explore the world again. So, finding yourself is an internal transformation, a journey of self-awareness and self-acceptance.
