My confidence and self-esteem were at rock bottom after a very abusive relationship - I didn't know who I was or what I was worth.
I'd never really felt I was ok. My parents had always been so wound up in their own stuff - it was like I was just irrelevant. A nuisance even. I didn't have many friends and, later on, I was bullied at school. I never felt like I fitted in anywhere. I thought I'd hit the jackpot when this man seemed to be interested in me. But it was all a sham, his charms were turned on to entrap me - they didn't last. I finally ended the relationship when I couldn't cope with his lies and cheating any more, but it left me feeling worse than ever.
A friend recommended I get some counselling and it was the best thing I did. My confidence has risen, I’m feeling a lot happier with myself and I know that I won’t make the same mistakes with relationships again
