There is great significance in making the choice to break free of an abusive family and then continue on the path of healing. Those who have gone before us may one day thank us for having the courage to create boundaries that made it impossible for them to continue to hurt us, after all, God will hold them accountable for every act of cruelty.
Easier to understand is the significance in breakingthe cycle of abuse for those that have come after us-our children and their children.
In the scriptural book, The Doctrine and Covenants, section 10 vs 3,4 it says –
“…therefore see that you are faithful and continue on unto the finishing of the remainder of the work…as you have begun.
Do not run faster or labor more than you have
strength…but be diligent unto the end.”
As I have continued on this journey, and as I have learned from cherished friends who are also on this path, there will be periodic setbacks, very likely throughout the remainder of our lives. As we keep pressing forward, hand in hand with Jesus Christ, we will continue to overcome. Progress can be maintained and setbacks can be temporary if you choose to not give up! Keep going. You really are not alone! –Nicole
