I quit because was tired of feeling like nothing or less than.
I quit because I knew deep down I wasn't any of the awful things he was trying to make me believe about myself
I quit because all the kindness, patience and love weren't going to change him
I quit because even though he got sober and was in recovery, I couldn't live with an abusive partner any longer
I quit because I value myself
I quit because I don't want my children to grow up and repeat the cycle
I quit because I knew there was a better life for me
I quit because I wasn't going to let fear take the wheel and drive for me anymore
I quit because I have a HP that I can trust to lead me to better things
I quit because I believe in myself even if he doesn't
I quit because I wanted my self-esteem back
I quit because I have never taken abuse from anyone before and I was putting a stop to it for evermore
I quit because I am a strong woman and want to be a good example to my children
I quit because I love me

Thank you for this thread. I know I could go on and on. Maybe I'll come back and add to this list again

Wonderful threat! A lot of very healthy self-esteem and self-care.
