Less Poetic

Mine is short and sweet. I was very young but we start off young in Mexico. My first boyfriend was very handsome and also very popular. He could be nice but he he could turn mean in an instant. Once he hit me even my own family was telling me that it was not a big deal. I did not take it and broke up with him. In America the men are much nicer I have never been hit while I was here. I know it happens here but when it does people do not like it

I learned that you do not have to allow abuse

your story makes me smile...usual when women are hit they are told to get out and they stay...you were told it wasnt a big deal and stood your ground anyway...i think coming from you more women would believe they can walk away (i have never been abused, so it wouldnt sound right coming from me)<br />
share your story, chica.
