When I was younger I foolishly thought my love a interest would say….
- I LOVE YOU TO DEATH💀
- I CANNOT SURVIVE WITHOUT YOU IN MY LIFE💀
- IF I CANNOT HAVE YOU NO ONE ELSE CAN EITHER💀
- IF I AM ABOUT TO DIE, YOU HAVE TO DIE WITH ME💀
💀Even though I only used 4 examples believe me there are many to pull from but I am confident in the fact that the point I am trying to get across will reach someone.💀
I have learned that if a guy says at least one of those RUN FAR AWAY WITHOUT LOOKING BACK! When I was in that insane, toxic, and suffocating relationship I handed over all the power over thinking because he said he would kill himself if I ended it 💛HE TRULY DO LOVE ME💛SIKE…THE JOKE WAS ON ME!
Love is not meant to hurt emotionally & physically like he would cause upon me anytime I would not agree with him. Love is not meant for you to walk on eggshells in your own residence terrified one small comment would set your spouse off. The local police department should NOT know your address is a common domestic violence call.
Before I was in a domestic violence relationship I used to say “I would never let a man put his hands on me in a violent threatening manner and if my significant other did, then I’ll walk away from the relationship altogether”. After much self reflecting I can see why most still go back even though the truth is directly front of him/or her. Most times in the beginning the person seems to be your own fairytale love story brought to life. (Exactly how I was swept off my feet)
Think of it as a onion because at first your eyes do not get teary at all and you keep pulling back each layer. Your eyes start watering a little which doesn’t really effect you much and you keep going. The more layers you pull off the more intense your eyes become. Rubbing your eyes doesn’t help because you are only making it worse. Even if you stop pulling off the layers of the onion it won’t help because you already went too far and cannot stop your eyes from watering.
The point I am trying to make is this📝 No one in any domestic violence relationship WANT to be in one & most go way too far and by that time he/or she realize the truth it’s too late.
