Hi Oldsoul and welcome to Healingwell. Sorry its taken us a bit to respond to your post, but the forum is a little slower in the evenings. I agree with Stkitt that maybe its best to keep things as they are with your ex. He was abusive in the past, has he done anything about
his anger issues? If not, for your safety and best interests, keep him as a friend. If you do go out, do it as Stkitt suggested and keep it in a group setting for your safety. Don't be so hard on yourself either. It sounds like you just got caught up in the moment and blurted out the words. I hope you will stay with us, and I hope we have helped some.
