Me Too

I had been debating on whether or not to post this on such a public forum, but I feel that I have to. Because stuff like this will not end unless it continues to be talked about. I thought that my story was too weak to be considered a # story because it didn't contain any typical horror that we've seen from other women. And then I realized that every story needs to be said, because abuse comes in many forms, not just physical.

I’ve talked about my ex before but it must be said that unwanted words and actions by anyone to another person is absolutely uncalled for. 

Life with my ex was a roller coaster of emotions and mental abuse. He was older and I thought that would be a good thing, because older means more mature to me. During the journey of losing my V-Card he told me that I couldn’t say no to sex until I learned to enjoy it. If that’s not harassment, I don’t know what is.

Before I knew it he was starting to make rape jokes and told me that I wouldn’t be a very good girlfriend anymore if I got bigger than I already was, at 100 or so pounds. (If you know me, then you know that I can wear shirts and hoodies from ages ago).

He told me that I was lazy and that I would always be a follower. I began to believe what he said and my mental state went to crap.

When I wanted to leave, I ended up packing up my stuff and leaving a note. I thought that if I told him in person, he would go crazy and I would have to call the police.

I’ve been away from him for about three now and it’s a great feeling because I lived on my own without him during the last bit of college, I graduated cum laude, and I regained some of my happy. But the memories tend to stick around sometimes. and I think that I would still get a fast heart-beat if I saw him in person ever again.

You are right, I didn't know a lot of this. I'm glad we got you out before it was too late. If I had known all this, it would have happened a Hell of a lot sooner. ~~Ma
