Relationship Violence Story From Brittany

by Brittany

i am still dealing with my abusive problem... i was sixteen when i met my boyfriend. at first it was all love.. but it soon got bad. i convinced my mom to let him move into to our home after dating him for almost six months. my mom was not happy at all but she knew that was the only way that i would stop running away and staying out late. After he moved in it started by just talking to me ugly and calling me names. Then one day we got into a really big fight and he slapped me . I told him to get the hell out of my house and he did. But one day later he called me saying he was sorry and that i was his every thing . ( I am a only child and i was raised just by mom . dad was never in the picture)so i moved out of my house that day and started living with him. At first it was nice but then be slowly started abusing me.he would beat me up at least two or three times a day. I am now 19 about to turn twenty and i am still in this abusive reltionship. i am too scared to tell my mom because it will break her heart into a milliion piceices. ive been hiding this from every one i know. i feel sooo alone. I know the way he treats me is wrong and i threw him in jail once. but i just keep going back. He always says he gunna kill himself and its gunna be all my fault . I know i need out of this relationship. this website is the only thing that i can express my feeling without being put down or hit. soo thank you for listening

You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. And you deserve to have the support and encouragement from the people who love and care about you. When you keep the secret, you keep yourself isolated from the very people who can step up and give you the support you need. And you really need that support right now. I know you don't want to hurt your mother, but I suspect she knows more than you realize. As hard as it would be for her to find out the real truth, it would really break her heart to learn that you didn't go to her when you need her most. And it would devastate her if something terrible happened to you. But what you need most is to get out of that abusive relationship. Your boyfriend is a typical abuser and you're living in the cycle of violence. It will NOT get better. In fact, it will continue to get worse as the violence will escalate, putting you in grave danger. 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 this kind of help, Brittany, but you must first believe that yourself in order to step up and help yourself. Nothing will change otherwise. You've taken a very brave first step by writing here. Take the next necessary step. You're worth it. YOU REALLY ARE. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
