Teen dating violence stoires Austrailia phone chat
To him I was fat, ugly, I dressed like a whore, I was dumb, selfish and a bitch.Each and every day I heard all of these insults and many more from the person I thought loved me until I no longer knew who I was.The physical violence and his paranoia were escalating.Being choked became a regular occurrence, I knew in my gut I needed to end the relationship, I just had to figure out how to do that.Slowly little things were said that I initially thought came from a caring place: “wow you look like you have gained weight”, “you really think that guy was hitting on you?
I was the girl who would say with pride that I would never let anyone, especially a boyfriend, hit me. He opened up to me immediately sharing the struggles with his family life growing up. He told me how his father was abusive to his mother and he hated him for it.
The threats against my family terrified me and I would never forgive myself if something happened to any of them.
