Does anyone else feel this way?

by Melinda
(Vic)

After spending almost a decade in an abusive relationship, I found freedom just over a year ago.

But its not as I expected. I thought I would be happy, or sad, feel hate, something... but still after a year I feel nothing... Its as if I am hollow.

I have become very good at putting on a brave face and acting as if all is well. But deep down its not.

My friends tell me maybe I should get back into the dating game and have some fun, but in all honesty, I am so so afraid of being hurt again both mentally, physically once again, that its almost easier to be single. Plus, who would want someone that is broken.

Does anyone else have these thoughts or feelings?
