Relationship Violence Story From Porsha

by Porsha
(Daytona, Florida, USA)

I had this boyfriend (of course) and before we dated, i was new to the school and i was kinda shy, and he was the first to introduce his self to me, i thought it was very nice of him and we became friends, and started to hang out and talk more in school. my friends told me we might as well go out because thats what other people thought because of how much we always hung around school together. so we dated an he always took me out to lunch and payed for my movie tickets when ever we went, but then things started to change when my old guy friend came back from new york, (he went to visit his sick mother) and i was very excited to see him. he was my best friend, so we start talking and hanging out around school and off and on to each others house. and my boy friend didn't like that so he start getting aggressive and abusive towards me. he didn't let me talk to him any more if i did he would hit me in front of them or curse me out, along with other boys to, i wasn't aloud at his house, he wasn't aloud at mines, i couldn't go to my girl friends house if they had older brothers. and when we were together at any moment he would make me look at the ground if any boys were walking passed or around us. he took my cell phone, deleted my Myspace, twitter and face book. i wasn't aloud over my uncles house anymore. and when my uncle asked me to come hang out i had to say i was busy or had to do a project for school...i am 17 now and still think i don't deserve this, and i put my self in this problem =(

MY NOTE TO TEENS WITH THIS PROBLEM; Don't put your self in this problem, its not fun, if your in this kind of relationship get out as fast as you can, you don't deserve it.

Get out of that relation immedieately, it is going nowhere
by: maurice

Don't be fooled or fool yourself now that you realize this is not a true relationship in friendship building. Give yourself the same advice as you give others at the end of your story. Darlene has spoken from her heart to you, take her word of encouragement and take action. get out. Who the f''' does he think he is controlling you and your living of your life at 17. Get him out of your life. You have good friends around you to stand by you. The audocity of any one to rule another's life. I hope you have spoken with your Parent's. You need help to let go of this little control freak. It ain't a relationship, he has no respect for you. he is just one weakling of a teenager. he needs to be told get a life. get help. Porsha, you deserve the best, get the best, Always believe in yourself. build up you own self-worth/esteem I will, I can, I must, because I am WORTH it. So a weak kick in your a** so that you will take charge of your own destiny and life. Remember I'M SPECIAL, MY LIFE AND DESTINY IS IN MY OWN HANDS NOT IN THE FREAKY HANDS OF THIS WHO-EVER. Ok Porsha I have spoken moreso Darlene has spoken.
