Even when you feel at your weakest, you are STILL stronger than your abuser. You may doubt this from time to time – but guess what? Your abuser knows it.
He knows you have a strength that he cannot ever match. That’s why he ramps up the abuse whenever he catches a glimpse of your spine-of-steel. He needs to keep hammering away (emotionally, physically, or financially – whatever it takes) to keep you down.
As his need to control you goes into overdrive, he’s terrified that one day you will find out that you are stronger than him. He is petrified that your strength will carry you away from him.
Still not sure? Then just think of even one day in your life with him. Could a weak person survive it without coming apart at the seams? Could he, if the boot was on the other foot? Exactly.
Even when you feel at your weakest, you are STILL stronger than your abuser!
What makes you feel powerful? When was your strongest moment?
