True stories dating abuse
I felt more helpless each time I attempted to break up.
The threats against my family terrified me and I would never forgive myself if something happened to any of them.
Through all of this my home was my safe haven where I could take a breath and I always felt loved.I wanted to support him and be there for him in any way he needed me.I happily took on the task of making him feel loved and supported no matter what, it was me who was going to show him unconditional love.Abuse in relationships was not a topic of conversation because it did not need to be.
I had a large close-knit group of girlfriends, I am close to my parents, brother, sister, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
It no longer felt like he was concerned for me but that he hated me.
