Seric saidI've had guys hit me before in a abusive way. Ice became my very best friend.
That sickens me to hear that. And you have my sympathies. Besides ice, how did you handle the situation afterwards, what did you do? Stay with them or leave? Were they BFs or what?
The first time, I endured it for about 3 more months, I honestly thought he could change. I had to ask a few of my girl friends if they could show me how to cover some of my marks with make up, though usually he would hit me in places where it couldn't be seen under the clothes. I felt broken, My friends cried for me, but I was so stupid, to think he could change.
My friend took me in one of their homes by force one day, they didn't tell my boyfriend where I was at, and they sheltered me, until I finally took a good look in the mirror. Not only was I broken on the outside, but I knew I was broken on the inside as well. I was so young, I didn't think it would have gotten that bad.
That was about four years ago.
And just recently, actually, yesterday night, I was on a date with a guy I've been seeing for about 2 or 3 weeks and he physically hit me for the first time, The memories, flooding in like waves, and old pains resurfacing, It was suffocating, and I felt like was drowning once again.
It's actually the major reason why my post as of late have been so jaded, and bitter.
