It's a strange feeling when you are chastised for standing up for yourself against traumatic and soul crushing mental and emotional abuse. I'm glad to say that I can now walk away the better person. It's just a shame that I've been so damaged that both forgiveness and forgetting will never come into play in my situation. All in all, a very good day with a positive outcome. Time to smile :)
I get scared when I get in a fight with someone because what if something happens and they're gone forever thinking that you hate them but really they mean so much to you and they'll never know the truth.
