Get out! Get out NOW! And then tell everyone you know why you're breaking up with him. Lean and your family and friends during this difficult time. Tell your teachers and counsellor so that they can help to keep you safe. You are on the cycle of violence with this guy; and you keep going back as a result of the honeymoon period and what you believe him to be. He is not the guy you think he is. When you see the sweetness, it's all part of the honeymoon phase. I repeat, it's not who he really is; it's a phase that always dissipates. He's an abuser and he's manipulating and controlling you. He's not only bad news, he WILL escalate the violence with each cycle. You are in danger staying with him. Please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). They have advocates available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week who can provide crisis intervention, escape planning, information and referrals to victims or anyone calling on their behalf.

You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, Audri. That's not happening with this boy, and you must understand that it never will. He needs help; and you can't give it to him. You do not deserve to be abused or assaulted in any way. Phone the number above for the sake of your safety. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

life CAN be good
by: Anonymous

oh sweetie. i was exactly where you are now 5 years ago. my boyfriend was sweet, and funny, and well liked. and then he started beating me. and it started with small things that i couldnt really explain to anyone, so i shrugged them off. before i knew it, i had grown accustomed to abuse... of every type. and i still stayed. if i left, i came right back. i still cant explain why, just as most women that have been in the same situation cant. but i will tell you this, it took him trying to kill me and me joining the army to get the courage to get away from him. please Audri, i beg you, dont make the same mistake so many of us make. the first step in leaving is terrifying, it is. but i promise it will only get worse if you stay with him, and life on the outside is waiting for you with open arms.
