Relationship Violence Story From Niesha

by Niesha
(Tenessee, USA)

I was 13 and was in this relationship with my first love. I gave this person 2 years and 6 months of my life and all through the relationship he beat on me. The first time he hit me he apologized and promised he never do it again. i believied it and didn't leave. As time went by i was blinded by love and everytime he hit me I thought it was my fault and i never thought anything of it. So blinded by love and being young and naive. I thought it was cause he loved me but turns out he was in love with someone else. I caught him cheating on me and it tore me apart. I cryed for 3 months and didn't eat and I stayed to myself. Now its to the point where I'm scared to love again and let the person I really care about now know how i feel. I'm afraid but I will soon get over it.
