As abusive as a situation might have been, it's the situation you know. Change is hard. You're used to the dynamics, you're habituated to the lows and the highs (in that order, probably). Breaking that habit is hard. Leaving abuse is really damn hard.
And now you get to find a way to feel good by not going through that. Be safe. That's a really wonderful change. Good luck, and stay strong. It's a challenge, sometimes, not to go back to the old habit. But you're safe, and that's wonderful.
