This is going to be a long one.
At the end of last year I dated someone for a short amount of time who mentally/psychologically and verbally/emotionally abused me. They would take the smallest thing I would do or say and twist it into something it wasn’t. They called me every name in the book. They would text/call me consistently but then turn around and tell me to leave them alone and to lose their number. Because I wear makeup, supposedly it’s the mask that I wear to hide behind. I’m apparently a “fake bitch” and “full of shit”. The worst thing I ever did to this person was tell them they’re mean and complicated. I also wouldn’t give them a second chance, but they didn’t deserve one. I tried to be their friend but it ended up being a joke and a waste of time. I’m not sharing this for people to pity me or to feel sorry for me. I’m sharing this in hopes that it will help someone else. I want people to know that they’re not alone. I want people to not be ashamed of something they’ve gone through or currently going through. I want people to find their voice and to be comfortable to share their struggles as I am with you. Don’t be afraid to share your story and your experiences. ❤️✊
