Relationship Violence Story From Sam

by Samantha
(Granby, Quebec, Canada)

I am thirteen. A couple months ago, I had a boyfriend and I really loved him. Twice he made me run away from home. He said that it was because he loved me. On the second time, he wanted us to have sex. At first I thought I was ready, but I realised I wasn't. So I tried telling him that. I thought that if he loved me he would understand and wait till I was ready. But he didn't. That's when I realised that all he wanted was my body and that he didn't really love me. I won't go in the details....

After I went home, I told my mom and she called the police. But I was so scared that my boyfriend would be mad at me that I denied everything.

I feel it's my fault because I could have screamed to wake up someone to come and help me. I feel so stupid for thinking he was in love with me. I'm always scared that it will happen again.

If you're a victim of physical abuse or sexual abuse in a relationship, don't keep it to yourself. Talk about it.
