    Been There Words Of Encouragement

    I have been in several abusive relationships. So I do have an understanding. Especially when you are trying to get out of it. Or even why you get back into another one. Woman. We cannot just settle for anyone or anything. We are precious. We need to have higher standards of our...

    Don't Understand

    I don't understand or even begin to understand why a man would hit a woman he is in a relationship with.  Espically when it is hard to get a date or into a relationship to begin with! It is like they don't apperciate and realize how special the person they are with really is...

     Today I went to a seminar for one of my classes on abusive relationships. I really made me feel uneasy about a lot of things. It took me back to a relationship I had dug really deep down in my past.  When Louie and I dated everything was amazing. He was the guy I had...

    It is a strong fear. Too many times I hear it,

    I have lived it my self. Being in a violent relationship with someone who really does not care about "you" robs so much from you. it takes away all the humanity, dignity, self caring, self esteem and so much more. They reach the pint where they just do not care. And...

    I too have been in an abusive relationship!

    There is still time for you to get out! If your married to this individual, perhaps you should let him know, that he needs to either change and get help for his anger or your going to leave! Love is not suppose to hurt! It's not too late for you to save yourselves! Your life is...

    ..sometimes youre just too close to the situation to see how violent and damaging a relationship can be to your own personal well being. I rely on those closest to me to help filter through all the losers I attract.. lol.
