Me Being Happy!
Heres the short version of my story. I was married to a man for 10 years and have 2 beautiful children out of it. We did have our good times but I was always afraid of the bad times. He has not and never would lay a hand on our kids. Its a totally different story with me. I was afraid of him and even though he has never hurt the kids, they have told me that they are afraid of him.. their never afraid to talk to me. but are so shy around him. Anyway, he would hit me throughout the marriage, even when i was pregnant with our children. there were times being a mom that i was so tired at the end of the day and just wanted to go to sleep. He wouldnt have it. He had to have me sexually. He`d get me out of bed and we would fight. He did have his ways of getting me out of bed. example, throwing my things at me and cold cups of water in my face. I was always too afraid to leave him because of financial reasons and i didnt know how to be on my own. The climax... He bruised me up in front of my kids after i found out he was also cheating on me and for the first time is surprized him and fought back after seeing the look of fear in the kids faces.To this day he has nothing but respect for me. Ive grown a backbone because of him and will never again put up with that. Now I have a new boyfriend, new career which i was never allowed to go to school for, and a new life with so many new friends both male and female. still getting used to male friends which i was never allowed because i would be "cheating". and he was the guilty one. Ironic. I have another story which i will share at a later time, but im happy and proud to say that im a survivor.
