i have been in one before, and it's all over now, the case was dropped since I have no history, but it still haunts me that there are people out there like that. It really hurts me to know that 50 percent of relationships are abusive, so i've heard. It's sad, and scary and horrible. I have been physically abused and now I don't trust the world as much as I used to. My partner says that I should just get over it. I have been to counseling for the domestic violence abuse and it doesn't seem to go away. Even with the guy I'm with, yes I love him, but it scares me to think that he will suddenly change. He is not abusive, but dramatic change has been present in my life for as long as I can remember. I have been to 12 schools in 12 years. I have a bipolar mother. and I may possibly be biploar (slightly, at times) myself. this makes me see that NOTHING LASTS FOREVER. this also influences me in my beliefs about marriage as well. most people (and i wish i were like most) think that marriage is healthy. I, on the other hand, that change is inevitable, so much, that I cannot promise MYSELF to one person BECAUSE i will change so much and BECAUSE i expect him to change so much. a person I once love turned on me, and it changed me forever. it was my own mom. then i had a supposed lover who then beat me (twice). that was enough for me. how can i trust anyone after that? im lucky to have the guy im with, but I am afraid of my future and am reluctant to have kids because of the pain they may endure. anyone relate??
