Standing Up For Myself
I left my (now ex) fiance a week ago.
I will not allow myself to be disrespected like that. I will never give the benefit of the doubt when I KNOW BETTER. I will never allow myself to be put in that dangerous of a situation where I have to fear for my life. I will no longer have the thoughts I would always have. I will no longer have that depression.
I am above that.
I am better than that.
I was raised to stand up for myself no matter what, and that is what I did. And I put the fear of God into that "boy."
He will never, EVER, lay his hands on me again.
I packed up all my stuff, and shoved it in my car, and drove away, without a single glance back. And with each mile seperating me from him, it was that much more of a weight lifting. I've laughed and smiled more in the past week, than the past 2 years. The sun shines alot brighter, and the sky is alot more blue, and at night the stars shine more, and I don't know why I didnt do this sooner.
