Relationship Violence Story From Ne'

by Ne'
(New York, USA)

Abused by another teen from the age of 14 to 19, which includes Order of Protections No arrest and eventually broken bones. The other teen was the victim of watching his parent being abused...I just wanted to have my first boyfriend...Now I am married to someone else after spending all my teen and young adult years escaping my past. The only way I got out was because he is deceased. We had a unplanned child together as a teen which I decided to keep back then so I could have someone to love me unconditionally, and was threatened to keep it as well. I do not trust anyone to give my love to...I realize now that I do not kiss my kids because I am afraid that they will turn on me one day. I am revengeful to anyone who tries to hurt me. I feel destroyed mentally because of my past when it comes to love. How do I make victory out of being a victim in my case. I can't talk to my oldest child to make peace because she will then find out the circumstances surrounding her conception. I can't afford to lose my children so I stay quiet and press on.
