Those who once experienced the pain and agony of surviving and getting out of a toxic relationship with an abusive partner know exactly how addictive this bond can be.
The worst part is that you usually don’t perceive it as a toxic relationship until one day the cold, harsh reality strikes you and makes you wonder where were you all this time.
But, that is the way it was designed in the first place. You don’t feel it all at once, because they make sure to build everything up over time and destroy you in the long run.
However, there are some brave, rare women who choose to end the suffering by breaking things off once and for all. They choose to take a leap of faith and make the initial step towards freedom.
So, for those who are lucky enough to finally find their true love after a toxic relationship, it is a completely different and fresh experience. A revelation. A beautiful rainbow after the heavy thunderstorm.
Here are 7 things you’re likely to experience once you meet a kind, an honest man after a toxic relationship:
1. YOU’LL LEARN TO LOVE AND APPRECIATE YOURSELF
Getting out of that toxic relationship and meeting a kind, honest person will positively influence you and help you learn the importance of self-love.
You’ll finally see the good in you. You’ll finally realize that the only person who controls your life is you.
2. YOU’LL EXPERIENCE FEELINGS YOU’VE NEVER FELT BEFORE
It will be awkward, and it will feel weird. But, it isn’t something you should be afraid of. Because this is exactly what life is.
You’ve suffered enough, but you were lucky to escape that prison and finally meet a person who is worth fighting for. Embrace the new you and embrace the positivity in your life. You deserved it.
3. YOU’LL EXPECT THE SAME
Unfortunately, you’ve been suppressed for so long, that you lost all faith in humanity. After wasting your precious time and energy on an abusive relationship, you are scared that you’ll be treated the same way again.
But, it is important to understand that this is a normal reaction. In time, you’ll realize that what you have now can never be compared with anything you’ve ever experienced before.
4. YOU’LL OVERANALYZE EVERYTHING
You have a problem accepting the fact that someone can truly be with you because they genuinely love you, not for the sake of using you.
So, you start overanalyzing everything. “Do they have an ulterior motive?”
One thing is certain, you’ll need a lot of reassurance before you start believing again.
5. YOU’LL KEEP APOLOGIZING FOR THINGS YOU DIDN’T DO
Due to constant hailstorms and conflicts in the previous relationship, you were used to apologizing to people all the time. Even when you weren’t the one who did anything wrong.
6. YOU’LL THINK HE’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE
You can’t help but feel afraid that something bad might happen at any given moment. So, you expect a fight. You expect a hidden, crazy trait in his personality. You expect him to lose it.
But, the reality is different. You’ve found a man who is exactly the person he said he is. No lies. No manipulation. No mind games. Only the truth.
7. BUT, YOU’LL LEARN TO TRUST HIM
You’ll apologize, you’ll overanalyze, you’ll feel weird and expect the same story all over again, but over time, you’ll understand that this man finally sees you for who you are.
You will learn what true love really is.
And you’ll finally feel what it means to love someone who loves you and cherishes you from the bottom of their heart.
