I happily took on the task of making him feel loved and supported no matter what, it was me who was going to show him unconditional love.
Our relationship started as a dream, we were young and thought I was in love. Yes we were obsessed with each other, I knew that drove my parents crazy, I wanted to be with him 24/7, and he with me.
After two and a half years of our relationship he started taking drugs then he threatened to kill me and that was it, I believed he would and decided to end it for good.
Nadya's teen domestic violence story starts when she was born, not into an abusive home but to parents who did not really know how to make her feel loved and valued.
I became tired of all this and I admit I was no angel throughout our relationship. I took beatings off my boyfriend at the age of 14, he would kick me on the floor, punch me in the face, he even broke my fingers.
But yet I stuck up for him after each one thinking he would change, but he never did.
This lack of emotional support left her more likely to find herself involved in an abusive relationship as a teen.
I was bullied in school, and sexually abused by the boys. Then we popped into this guys house that she was seeing, there I was in the middle of a room with about ten men all much older by at least ten yrs.
I knew that it existed in the world and I knew it was bad if it happened, but I had no idea it was called Domestic Violence, and I definitely had no idea how deeply dangerous, manipulative, gradual and lonely being abused was, until I met Phil. With the amazing upbringing I had experienced it was difficult for me to imagine living in a violent environment.
I wanted to support him and be there for him in any way he needed me.
We dated off and on for three years because I though he was the best I could get. When he would shoot up he would hurt me, choke me, hit me and would tell me if I didn’t do drugs with him he would put it in my arm for me.
Through all the years though he became a heroin addict. I never did them but he became more and more disrespectful and hurtful. In the end the outcome was a horrible heartbreak, a waste of three years and I later found out he cheated on me with over nine girls.
