It’s strange, what runs through your head, when the person who said they loved you pins you under them and won’t let go. When the person who made you feel so special throws you into a wall. When someone who made you laugh like a child is screaming threats at you and calling you names. When that person is holding a knife and you are so scared that you can hardly think, let alone move. What you do think goes something like this: ”This is not happening. Not to me. Not to me.” I was abused by one of my ex-boyfriends. When it happened I almost couldn’t believe it. It felt so surreal. I walked away and know today that these things do happen. To me. To someone who could be me. What the surface tells us is sometimes terrifyingly far from the truth. Because behind #couplegoals and red carpet smiles there is room for things far darker. So, always report abuse, even when you find reasons to forgive or even defend the abuser (and trust me, you will). Tell your friends or your family if someone you are with is behaving in a way that makes you scared. And remind yourself - It is not your fault if someone hurts you. Not ever, not even a bit! Take care of each other ❤

    Thank you for talking about this. I was just thinking about people on my age that have a “fun life” but are a extreme when it comes to drugs, i always keep thinking: how does this people even work, but seeing models who have the couple goals or the red carpet life and tell their real stories keeps me warm because then i some how see that every one can struggle with something and we all have the same values, just important to be good with one and other

    I’m so so sorry someone did that to you. Experienced verbal abuse by one of my ex boyfriends when I was 15. Even 7 years later when I go through a breakup or hardship, I always think back to what my ex said and doubt who I am and if I caused these things, even when I didn’t. It truly makes you question who you are as a person and breaks you down from the inside out.

    thank you so much for this. Your story really inspired me. I have been in a toxic relationship for a while now. I’m not sure if it qualifies as abuse, but it sure was not healthy. I wanted to break things off because it just wasn’t working out and he threatened me then threatened to kill himself and then he used by religion against me. He said the Bible said I have to forgive and if I don’t then I’ll rot in hell. you’re story, while much more serious, inspired me to finally end things. ❤️❤️

    @illustrations.sa oh sweetie, I’m so sorry 😔 threats to both hurt you and himself is verbal abuse, and it’s never okey! And unfortunately it’s often the first step to physical. I think you really deserve better and send all my strength and love to you ❤️🌹❤️
