      A New Beginning


It is amazing how blind love makes you. I went out with this guy for 5 years. I had known him all my life but it wasn't until my 10th grade year in high school did we decide to go out. I wish I would have said no. Things were great at first, the typical new "love". But then he changed. He started telling me what to wear, who I could talk to, where I could go. He would call me fat (which I wasn't,)and he pushed all my friends away from me. He controlled every aspect of my life. After we dated for two years, he cheated on me and lied about it for 2 weeks. I finally drug it out of him and we broke up for 2 months. And stupid me took him back, but I will say in my defense that he was very mentally abusive, though I didn't realize it at the time. He had me chained to him basically. And then I let him move in with me shortly after that and things really got bad. I did all the house work, outside work, grocery shopping, ect..He did nothing! I was not allowed to leave the house or do anything except cook and clean. And I put up with it for 3 more years!  I eventually became pregnant, I was told that I couldn never have kids,  later to find out that he had been trying to get me pregnant for a long time so we would have to marry and I would be stuck with him. But, I lost my babies at 7 weeks. That was the last straw for me. I finally got the nerve up and threw him out for the last time. I told him I was tired of the rape, tired of the abuse.It was so hard to get over him though. I never realized the mental hold he had on me for so long. I thought I would die with the pain. I almost took him back again too! But I met up with an old friend of mine from high school , and he helped me break the vicious cycle I was trapped in. I have been dating him for 2 months now and it has been the best 2 months of my life. He has shown me that there really is true love, and trust in a relationship. He is everything to me. I feel nothing for my ex. And I just want to say to anyone out there that has been in a relationship like the one I was in, don't lose hope, true love is out there.
