I was the girl who would say with pride that I would never let anyone, especially a boyfriend, hit me. He opened up to me immediately sharing the struggles with his family life growing up. He told me how his father was abusive to his mother and he hated him for it.
I knew that it existed in the world and I knew it was bad if it happened, but I had no idea it was called Domestic Violence, and I definitely had no idea how deeply dangerous, manipulative, gradual and lonely being abused was, until I met Phil. With the amazing upbringing I had experienced it was difficult for me to imagine living in a violent environment.
I thought I could give him a second chance and he would change but that was a mistake.
We dated off and on for three years because I though he was the best I could get. When he would shoot up he would hurt me, choke me, hit me and would tell me if I didn’t do drugs with him he would put it in my arm for me.
Here is her story: Since the age of nine I had been in love with this one boy ... We used to get together and he used to cheat, even at the young age of 11 he broke my heart by cheating on me.
At the age of 13 we got back together and at first it was great: he was loving and kind.
My unhealthy Relationship…I started dating a guy freshman year that I fell head over heels for.
He took my virginity that year and I later found out he was cheating on me.He always twisted things around and made it seem like my fault.A lot of girls stay in an abusive relationship because they have not met a good guy yet, they may be insecure and may not have a very good relationship with their fatherly figures."I planned this really cool Disney date for this girl I was seeing.I had my cousins meet up with us so they could hold up some signs on Space Mountain when they take your picture.Through all the years though he became a heroin addict. I never did them but he became more and more disrespectful and hurtful. In the end the outcome was a horrible heartbreak, a waste of three years and I later found out he cheated on me with over nine girls.
