    Although the abuse ended nearly four years ago

    and I haven't seen him since, I still have emotional and physical scars. I'm still afraid of men. I don't even want a relationship, I just want to be able to feel comfortable just hanging out with a guy. But I guess I'm still afraid. Will I always be afraid?

    Physical Abuse

    I fell in love with someone and they made me feel safe, after many months of being with the person they hit me many times. The physical abuse kind of made me a little less trusting of everyone. I guess I have never gotten over it. The part that makes me mad now when  think...

    His Version Of Love Was Very Painful.

    The four months that i was with him were the four worst months of my entire life. When we first met it was amazing it seemed like he completely understood me and it made me feel like i meant something to someone. After the first two weeks of our relationship he told me he loved...

    For over a decade, I stuck with a guy who hit me at least once a year. The first time, I believed him when he insisted I'd provoked him. This was in our first year living together, and I wish I'd gotten out then. He pulled my hair, shoved me, spit on me and once kicked me in the...

    Not Just One Someone

    My father is an emotionally absent alcoholic.  He moved in with his mistress (ha ha... that makes her sound like something other than a trailer-trash skŠ°nk) and her children when my sister and I were little.  We'd see him a few days a week, but we never really thought...

    Verbal, physical, mental, emotional.  I've had it all one time or another.  It's no fun at all.  I hope I never have to deal with anymore abuse of anykind again after this.  I think this one is emotional.  Not by words or anything directly towards me...
