- RANT: I really hate going out & seeing other couples.. NO, I’m not “hating”, I just really wish my boyfriend didn’t have to live so far away from me..So we could kiss, hug, hold hands, cuddle.. (etc) & I could show him how much I love him, just like everyone else gets to do but sadly, Noooo. He lives in another state. We’re stuck in an LDR (Long Distance Relationship) & It sucks, It really, really, REALLY sucks.. especially when all you want is to be able to be with that person. I miss him so much.
have you ever had the urge to spoil somebody and buy them everything they’ve ever wanted because they are just so wonderful and you love them a lot and they deserve all of the nice things??? then u realize u are broke and sad
very chilling topic on twitter right now.
i have my own reasons for #WhyIStayed, and looking through this hashtag, i can see so many women and men who were lost, just as i was.
i stayed because it was the first time i felt important to anyone. he “loved” me. when he said he would die if i left him, i thought it passionate. when he started showing up unannounced at my house, because my friends told him my brother’s friends were over, i thought the jealousy was endearing.
then he tried to kill himself when i left town for two days. he was convinced that i would find someone else, in a town where i knew no one. i came back home, and promised i would never leave.
the manipulation and emotional abuse became physical—but only once. he slammed me against a wall after i made a joke about dumping him once i started college. i hid the bruises from my family, for weeks. that was the moment i decided to get out, no matter what happened. for some people, it only takes one time. others need more than one. and some people never make it out alive.
it is not always easy to “just leave.” it is a blessing if you are able to leave, with no consequences.
