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.

Well done! The courage to actually leave was probably the biggest step & it sounds like you cleared it by a mile. Congratulations on the start of a happier life :)

Good for you! Smiles and laughter is how it should always be.

You are a smart woman! So much better to do this now than down the road when their are children, etc. I know this from experience, I waited. I also know from experience that even though it is difficult at times, it is so better then were you were!

Good for you!

I hope your story inspires others in bad situations to do the same.

So very proud! It takes a lot of courage to do what you did. Always remember that NO guy is ever worth going through that.

Very proud of you!

Laughter is a wonderful healer though it sounds as if your heart is not exactly broken!

One b/friend hit me and sent me flying. I stayed down as I knew if I got up he would follow through.He went out and returned a couple of hours later - never apologised and I didn't say a word.
Life continued as normal for about two weeks when he woke up one night to find me sitting across his cheat with his arms pinned by my knees and a knife at his throat, telling him that if he ever raised a hand to me again then he would wake up minus his ****!

Scared the life out of him and I threw him out the next day. I just needed him to know that I was not one to suffer in silence!
