One of the troubling aspects of abuse is that you often don’t recognize it until you’re caught in its insidious web.
Fleur Beaufort did not deal with her abuse until she started writing poetry. She could not talk to others about her trauma, but when she immersed herself in creative writing, she started to heal.
Expressing herself through poetry and song helped her process and deal with her emotions and traumatic memories, but she still had to learn how to love herself. She made headway when she began making positive affirmations—something she continues to this day.
She shares how she overcame the trauma of the past by learning lessons such as:
• Setting strong, enforceable boundaries promotes meaningful relationships.
• Moving out of denial is moving toward freedom.
• Avoiding conflict often leads to resentment and bitterness.
She also explains how to recognize abuse, why some people abuse others, what you can do to stop abuse, and where to go if you need help.
