Your nails are gorgeous! And congratulations on getting away from an abusive and controlling relationship!
I want to recommend several books to help you, even now, 8 months later. The more time you can take for yourself to heal and to learn–probably at least a year–it will reduce the chances of getting into another relationship that includes abuse and control.
I was in a decade-long abusive relationship, which I successfully exited in 2012, and have never looked back. Life just keeps getting better, and I am so happy to finally have a serene and peaceful life. These were invaluable resources for me. Thank you for sharing your story of strength!
