Abuse

I have not talked about this on my blog before, but 10 years ago I was in an abusive relationship. I never thought that I could be that girl. I never thought I could let a guy do that to me, but I did. I do not know how it happened, but it did.

I would not change the past..it made me stronger. I do not talk about it often, as I hate to hear people's reaction when I tell them... "but you are so strong & independent, how did you let that happen?!" I didn't 'let' it, trust me.

But why am I sharing this now? I am because I saw this guest post on Rage Against the Minivan & I felt like Kristy's words were coming out of my mouth, that I could have wrote this.

I wanted to pass this along. I wanted to say it on my blog...I was in an abusive relationship & I did get out. I did take my life back & here I am 10 years later..I am married, I am happy...if you would have told me this 10 years ago, I would not have believed you.

I will tell you more about my story later, but until then, please take a moment to read this post.

  1. Wow so intense. I can not relate to this at all, so I'm not going to say much but thank the Lord, you are no longer in that situation. Thanks for sharing a very powerful story.
