Resilience – Michelle, 39

“Poisonous relationships can alter our perception. You can spend so much time thinking you’re worthless.

Whenever I was happy, he’d put me down. He liked to see me insecure; he’d break me down every time I regained some confidence in myself. If I succeeded or claimed a tiny victory at work, he’d ruin it for me.

Strength is finding your voice, making the decision to leave, to get help, to put one foot in front of the other and fight for your freedom and happiness.

Today, I’m loved; I’m happy, I feel confident and I’m successful in my career.”

– Michelle, 39
