Teen dating violence and personal stories
The acts of verbal abuse, and physical violence were endless.Around the age of 19 the violence got so bad I feared for my safety like I never had before.Jody: I know what it’s like to be disregarded and disrespected by the legal system. Jenna: We had our good times but once we were married, his desire to control everything became more obvious.Anna: It’s quite a terrible thing to admit that you have been in two abusive relationships. Kaz: I began to believe that it was my fault and felt like I was in this rollercoaster that I couldn’t get off.His obsession with controlling me got so bad I would have panic attacks simply deciding what I would wear for the day.If I wore something or did anything he did not like I was verbally abused, screamed at, and then he began to hit, choke, slap me and he even spat in my face a few times.
I mean not many guys like a girl your size and a flat chest”, “I don’t like when you wear those shorts, they are way too short.I just love you so much I hate it when other men look at you”. It made me feel like he loved me so much that it hurt him when other men paid attention to me.
