The new year is upon us. Many people are looking forward to a fresh start and a clean slate. It might be hard for some to leave toxic and abusive relationships. Whatever it is, Gail Mabalane's wish for you is that you find it in yourself to look beyond this place you are in.

"You are stronger than you think, more valuable than you could ever know.

Your best years are still ahead of you, do not be afraid to start again," she says.
