Leaving a Toxic marriage/relationship is Hard; I personally couldn’t leave cause l had lost myself in the marriage beguiled by religion & culture 🤦🏽♀️
Leaving is not automatic, here are some tips based on my life experiences…….
💚… Find a reliable friend to confide in ( don’t be like me, l was confiding in one of his sides🙄
💙… Get specialist support, you can pop into a local charity ‘drop in’ center. Searching online can be risky cause your partner can track your online searches…
safely, Time, dates, names & how you felt, record then transfer to a USB stick & keep safe. 🧡.. Know your civil & legal rights!! ( don’t be bamboozled like l was) ❤….Financial Independence…. save, put money away if possible. It’s hard cause l know that well. 🖤……Make/ have copies of passports, birth certificates, marriage certificates, You can keep these outside the house, maybe a neighbour or trusted friend 🔥…PLSSSSS DIAL 999, ALWAYS CALL THE POLICE ( Don’t be like me always calling Pastors 🙄)…Also teach your children how to call 999….. or call 101 to report Non emergency…..’
Recall that the actress turned psychotherapist who is based in London is divorced from husband due to the abuse.
