True stories dating abuse
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.In this fictional rendition of the author's life, Harry Potter appears as visions; she finds herself wandering through the woods of her imagination and scrawling pages like a raving lunatic.The biopic borrows from every genius trope in the moviemaking book.(2017)On August 20, 1989, brothers Lyle and Erik Menendez killed their parents, Jose and Kitty, while they watched TV in their Beverly Hills living room.The signs weren't obvious, especially to a 14 year-old, but it began with him telling me he didn't like the shirts I wore, or that my skirt was too short; at the time, it was easy to mistake jealousy and control for adoration.It soon progressed to name-calling, insults, unfounded accusations, degradation, humiliation, and isolation.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.
It was easier to stay and suffer in private than to try to leave and be humiliated in public.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.After being treated like crap for years I realized that I thought it was normal for a boyfriend to treat their girl like that.I would put up with so much in hopes he would change but I met a guy this last year who has treated me like a Queen, respects me and doesn’t lie to my face.
