Everyone experiences stress from time to time, and will need to discover and practice effective stress management approaches for a healthy psychological condition.
As an aside, stress can lead to depression, and the longer depression lasts the better the opportunity for neurotransmitters becoming damaged, requiring an individual to obtain psychotropics from a mental health professional.
The following resources provide beneficial information in reducing/managing stress:

This blog has discussed many forms of abuse during the month of February. Whether someone is currently in an abusive situation, or was able to escape one, GOD (CHRIST) witnessed all of it, and will sort things out on behalf of the abused.
GOD is everywhere, sees everything, and everyone. Rest assured, GOD disciplines disobedience. The day will come when HE confronts the abuser. The latter will have to answer the former. There are always spiritual ramifications set into place towards people with heinous behaviors. The abuser won’t escape. GOD is loving and has the final word on everything.
It’s important for the abused to understand another factor: It’s one thing to be a victim of abuse, quite another to play the victim. The latter discourages the ability to recognize positive opportunities when they knock. If therapy is required, continue on that road. Lead a life filled with purpose. Don’t allow abuse to hinder the future. Don’t allow any of it to define personhood.
May the rest of life’s journey be filled with absolute goodness and calm.
