In My PastWhen I was in elementary school, my father got a job in a different state, leaving my mother, my brother, and me at our home. My brother was a gymnast and my mother had to take him to practice an hour away every day after school... For several years I was always alone and didn't really think my parents liked me.
When I was in 8th grade I started dating guys, and I used to be that girl that always had a boyfriend... I got cheated on a couple of times, but I reasoned it saying that "I rather him go somewhere else and get it if I'm not giving it to him, than him leave me".
My sophomore year, I started dating a guy who I was madly in love with... We dated on and off for a year and a half. He emotionally abused me. I hated myself and still have some self esteem issues because of him. I was actually engaged to him as a sophomore in high school.
(He is now in jail for dealing meth.)
I then dated another guy that I thought I was going to marry. He left me for no reason at all (or none that he has ever told me) the day before our 13 months...
I then met then man who is now my husband. I started dating him and a few months later he left for basic training for the Army, and I went to my first year of college. He missed our one year together. But that is the best way to become strong...
I feel like I have been through a lot, but nothing at all at the same time.
