Count to 20

Sometimes we have to take a step back and examine self. 

We can all get caught up in a moment and only have the luxury of hindsight as cold comfort. 

The best lesson I learnt in the last 48 hours is when those sneaky old past traumas rear an ugly head I should just stop where I’m standing and count to 20. Give myself a moment to remember that that was then and this is now. 

Surviving abuse is only the battle, living without it colouring the rest of your life is the war.
