Default Still struggling

I was verbally abused by my ex boyfriend for over 3 years.
It became a part of my life, something I accepted as fact.
My friends finally did convince me he was bad for me, and I've been away from him for about 2 months now, but...
The memories still remain. And the words still cut deep.
How do I get over it?

I know its a cliche that time heals all words. He was a big part of your life and you loved him. So of course the words are still going to get to you. You need to remember why you left him. It sounds like he was verbally abusing you, as a way of trying to control you. Making you think you didn't have anyone but him, keeping your self esteem low. I am glad you got away from him and that you have some good friends

I was in a similar situation just over a year ago, although I was only with the guy for a month or two. As Shane says, only time will heal. It did for me, although it still does occasionally bother me but not half as much as it did. You just have to give it time. Feel free to contact me if you ever need to talk.

You brought hate, pills and knives,
And this is how the tale begins.
Its your life, exist and wonder why.
When it only fails to work,
It only fails to work sometimes

I totally know what you mean, I've been in your position before. Basically, how I got over it, was the way my friends convinced me otherwise. Then I really began to question if what they said was true. Now, to this day, I don't believe anything anyone said to me was true.
