I have so many stories to tell, where do I start... I hated myself for years, but I didn’t know what love felt like. I was adopted by a family who was abusive as long as I can remember. Once I graduated, I moved away to go to college. I failed my first semester and dropped out. I met a girl and fell in love. We married 6 months after knowing each other. Everything was love and rainbows.
I was beat daily as a kid, so when my wife started beating me, I wasn’t fazed. She knew what my childhood was like. She always said she was sorry with gifts. My mind frame was “if you didn’t hit me, you didn’t love me.” After a few years of hurting, I finally got the strength to leave. People don’t believe that same sex marriage deal with domestic violence, but we do. We just suffer in silence. Being part of the LGBTQIA community doesn’t make me part of an epidemic dealing with domestic violence does.
I volunteer and donate to Quality Day Foundation, they showed me love with no restriction. Please join me with donating to an amazing cause because its needed.
Ladies, please leave at the first sign of abuse. Love yourself first.
