I would like to know, after the initial shock you have been abused, followed by nightmares. Do the dreams ever stop?

I don't know if this would work for you but I had some dreams where I believe it was God trying to get me to let go. This is a very hard process, letting go. And I see you have a Bible verse so that is why I bring this up. I know not all of us on her believe in God.
I began reading God's promises before bed and when the dreams began I'd wake up and immediately (after many nights of practice) begin to quote what I could remember, say I forgive them and want to walk in His healing, please help me and let me sleep in the shelter of Your arms.
You are right, this too shall pass.
I hope you have a restful nights sleep with no dreams or dreams of something you love...

Hope is what keeps me going. People move in and out of your life. Material possessions don't last, or lose their appeal. Exciting events come and pass, leaving you with no more distractions. Staying positive all the time is difficult.

But having hope that even when the days are long and my thoughts are dark that the sun will shine again is my best motivator. And what gives me hope is the thought that everything is temporary. Even the most vile of situations cannot last forever.

Zoitsa- have you thought about having your dreams analyzed? There are books you could pick up, or you could go to www.dreammoods.com to find out what it is that your subconscious is trying to tell you. I know it's uncomfortable to dwell on, but I find that each time I have a disturbing dream, finding out what the dream meant gives me a sense of peace. And usually keeps the dream from coming back.

You can't fail if you don't quit.

Good morning ladies. I havent heard from any of you, for quite sometime. I hope all is well with all of you. I have been having nightmares of my abuser. Thank God she is gone. I get angry at myself that I do dream of her. Oh well this too shall pass.

The only thing that keeps me going and gives me the strength to get up each day is my daughters. Seeing their happy smiling faces helps me to realize that there is something good in the world..something worth living for.

There's no way I could make it without God in my life, His word, the husband he's blessed me with, our daughters, the friends and doctors/therapist he places in my life.

Mine is my hubby. He loves me and that feeling of being loved keeps me hanging on somehow.

Hello everyone, it's me again.

I was just kind of curious about something. What keeps us going? Even though every minute of the day feel like a struggle to survive, and knowing that each hour to come is an hour you are going to have to live in pain. What is it that keeps us going what is the driving force.
