LW: Well done. Good on you. You went through all the pain of breaking it off. KA, Kate, Anonymousse are all making excellent points; you are at a dangerous junction, where you might turn back or doubt yourself. Please don’t! It’s normal to feel bad after leaving, even if it’s a good thing. You might be grieving the life you thought you were going to have. It will hurt less. None of the gossips pay your bills, so what they think you *should* do is worth diddly squat. Getting some understanding of what led you to accept awful treatment is going to save you a repeat. Good luck & thanks for the update.
