YSK: abusers may try to guilt you into thinking you're a bad person

Literally dealing with this right now. I'm less than a week out of a stay in hospital because of its effect on my mental health and now doing a PHP to prepare for the the future. I literally hated myself for 30 years because of others people and suffered a LOT pain because of it. Unfortunately, i'm still dependant on most of them right now, for basically everything, and I don't have anyone else left, but at least I know that I never truly hated myself, I was just made to believe it. The signs were always there but it took falling into a safe place and learning about myself from professionals to accept them. I'd ramble more usually but I can't rn, so, I'll say that i'm very open if you want to ama just dm, or comment if that's better for you.
