Well, its taken two years but i’ve finally sorted myself out.
I passed my driving test, after 2 years of learning and taking my test 7 times, i finally did it. I never gave up and now its paying off, i’m more independent now and love going out in my car and i think all the time i spent learning has made me a better driver :)
I have a new boyfriend now and my abusive ex never crosses my mind apart from when people tell me he’s at the lowest of the low and in a gutter somewhere. I sit and have a secret smile about the fact that i’m in a better place than him now and i’m the bigger person. He has not defeated me.
I also have a new job, which i love. It’s the same as what i was doing but i don’t have any colleagues to put me down. I love working on my own, it’s the best.
I’ve really found myself over this past two years and i finally know who i am. I don’t need anyone to complete me, but having people is definitely a bonus. I’m loving life and i’ll never take it for granted again :)
