How to Rise above Past Abuse and Violence in Life

Dealing with a traumatic past can be one of the hardest things possible. If you’re committed to leading a life that’s enriching and happy, however, there are things you can do to leave your past behind. Recovery is a process that calls for a lot of devotion, care and time.

Seek Therapy

Therapy sessions can be helpful to people who are looking to process difficult emotions. Look for a therapist who has the perfect credentials and background. Find a professional who gives you a good vibe. Letting go of feelings that are bottled up inside can be one of the most liberating things on the planet.

Talk to Friends

Opening up to friends can help you feel like you’re not alone. It can be especially effective to communicate with friends who have been in similarly difficult situations in life. It’s always nice to get a reminder that you’re not an anomaly and that there are others who essentially understand how you feel. Communicating with a friend can help you relieve your burden. It can make you feel like you’re connecting with another soul, too.

Talk to an Attorney

A consultation with an attorney can be helpful to survivors who feel like they may need to pursue legal action. If you’ve experienced harrowing domestic violence in a marriage, you should look for a lawyer who understands your situation in vivid detail. Search for a highly regarded domestic violence attorney. Explain your situation to this professional in significant detail, too. You may have a case on your hands.

Be Kind to Yourself

Being kind to yourself can help you move on in life. Don’t beat yourself up over your tough past. Remember that nothing is your fault. Things were out of your control. All you can do is concentrate on being a good person. You can concentrate on self-improvement for the future, too. You can be kind to yourself by taking up enriching hobbies, relaxing on a regular basis, and simply by smiling. Violence isn’t something that people can ever easily forget. That doesn’t mean that it has to consume you for the rest of your life though.

Abuse doesn’t have to define you. If you want to get past a tough situation, you have to have a lot of determination. A terrific support network can also work. Don’t be afraid to reach out to friends and relatives who care about you.

I love this piece.  I would love to send it to the publishing department of the magazine.  However, to do so it needs the following:

1) Abstract at the beginning with a word count

2) Bio at the end, with a link for readers to follow you if you wish

3) Must be in third person

4) A total word count of 600 to 1000 words

If you respond to this comment, I will receive an email to notify me.  I would love to submit this piece.

Wishing you well.
