I was in a relationship that was toxic but felt stuck. I regained my confidence and learned how to set boundaries. I am now single and dating but am sticking up for myself and what I want. I am also doing better at setting boundaries with family and friends so that I am not always feeling pressure to do what I don't want to do.
