“Leaving a Toxic marriage/relationship is Hard; I personally couldn’t leave cause l had lost myself in the marriage beguiled by religion & culture 🤦🏽♀️ Leaving is not automatic, here are some tips based on my life experiences;
“💚 Find a reliable friend to confide in ( don’t be like me, l was confiding in one of his sides🙄.
“💙 Get specialist support, you can pop into a local charity ‘drop in’ center. Searching online can be risky cause your partner can track your online searches…
“💜 Keep a record of events, abusive incidents, evidence of your Partner’s behaviour safely, Time, dates, names & how you felt, record then transfer to a USB stick & keep safe.
“🧡 Know your civil & legal rights!! ( don’t be bamboozled like l was)
“❤ Financial Independence…. save, put money away if possible. It’s hard cause l know that well.
“Make/ have copies of passports, birth certificates, marriage certificates, You can keep these outside the house, maybe a neighbour or trusted friend.
“🔥PLEASE DIAL 999, ALWAYS CALL THE POLICE ( Don’t be like me always calling Pastors 🙄)…Also teach your children how to call 999….. or call 101 to report Non emergency.”
