Letter to the Man Loving Me After My Abuse

Letter to the Man Loving Me After My Abuse

Sharing is caring!

My Dearest,

I know it’s not easy to love someone who has been through the darkness of abuse. I understand the weight that comes with loving a person who still bears the scars of their painful past. It takes strength, patience, and an extraordinary heart to be by my side, loving me when I sometimes struggle to love myself. But you are here, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

You’ve held my hand through the most challenging moments of my life, even when I didn’t realize I needed you to. You’ve been my unwavering support, my confidant, and my shelter in the storm. Your belief in me, your unyielding faith that I can heal and love again, has been my guiding light in the darkest of times.

I want to thank you from the depths of my soul for being my rock, my safe harbor when I felt adrift in a sea of despair. Your presence in my life has been nothing short of a blessing, and I cherish every moment we’ve shared together.

There are times when I still retreat into the shadows of my past, haunted by memories of pain and fear. I know there are moments when I seek your approval, a remnant of a time when I was conditioned to believe that someone else’s happiness was my sole purpose in life. Your patience during these moments has been a lifeline, pulling me back to the present, reminding me that I am loved for who I am.

It’s not easy to love a soul that has been shattered and mended, to wait for someone who is learning what true love means. But you have done just that, my love, and for that, I can’t thank you enough.

You’ve been my constant reminder of who I am and who I can be. Your love has shown me my strength, my resilience, and my capacity for love. You’ve taught me that I am worthy of love, despite the lies I was once made to believe.

Every day, without fail, you ensure that I hear those three words, “I love you.” Your daily affirmation reminds me of my worth and fills the spaces in my heart that were once occupied by doubt and self-blame.

After enduring constant pain and abuse, it becomes challenging to remember the person we once were. It’s even harder to believe in our own lovability when the one we loved most told us otherwise. You have been instrumental in helping me rediscover my true self and embrace it with open arms.

And let’s not forget the magic of laughter. It had been so long since I had genuinely laughed that I had almost forgotten how it felt. My laughter, once rusty and unfamiliar, found its way back into my life because of you. I had convinced myself that happiness was an impossible dream, trapped in a bottomless pit of despair, broken dreams, and shattered emotions. But you, my love, found the key to unlock that pit and release me from its grip. You made me smile, you made me laugh, and you made me believe in happiness once more.

Your love, in all its forms, has been a beacon of light in my life. Each kiss, every tender touch, and the sweet refrain of “I love you” have all been tokens of your affection that I hold dear. Your love speaks volumes in the moments of silence we share, in the vulnerability of your fears, and in the depths of your thoughts that you entrust to me. You make me feel loved, cherished, and valued every minute of every day, and for that, I am profoundly grateful.

Loving someone at their most unlovable is a profound act of kindness and compassion. You’ve loved me when I couldn’t love myself, when I couldn’t fathom deserving this life, this love. You’ve shown me the incredible beauty that life can offer, even after enduring so much pain.

You’ve given me a reason to live and to fight for a brighter future. Most importantly, you’ve helped me understand that it was never my fault. Your love has been a lifeline, a reminder that I am not defined by the darkness of my past but by the strength I find in your arms.

It takes an exceptional man to love a woman who has been broken, who has borne the scars of abuse. You, my love, are that exceptional man, and I thank the universe every day for bringing you into my life.

In your arms, I have found healing, love, and a profound sense of belonging. With you, I have learned to love again, not just you, but also myself. You’ve illuminated the path to recovery and happiness, and I will forever be indebted to you for that.

So, my dearest, as I conclude this letter, please know that you are my rock, my savior, and my greatest love. You are the reason I smile, the reason I laugh, and the reason I believe in love once more. You are mine, and I am eternally grateful for the gift of your love.

With all my love,

Yours forever
