What a wonderful friend you had! But I give you so much credit for following this friend's advice and recognizing that what he or she was saying had merit. You now understand more about relationship violence as a result of what you went through and what your friend knew and shared with you. You now understand that what happened was not your fault; and if you don't, let me say it here and now: what happened was not your fault. Fault lies squarely on the shoulders of this guy who was an abuser because he chose to abuse. Always remember that. And I'm delighted that you now see the difference between an unhealthy and healthy relationship. You deserve the latter. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
