You never know how fast things can escalate until someone draws the last straw.
And fortunately, that was all I needed to open my eyes.
After a verbally abusive relationship I realized I wanted more. And once he laid his hands on me, I knew it was over.
I was 19, but I knew I deserved more.
Change For The Better
He called me naive because I believed everyone was genuine.
With him, I learned not to trust everyone. Including him.
But when I walked away, I gained so much more.
They say you don’t need to reinvent the wheel, but you can always improve from it. That’s what I did.
I didn’t go back to being just me. I became a better version of myself. And everyone who knew this version of me loved her just as much as I had fallen for her.
Strong, care-free, and most importantly, genuinely happy.
That’s when I knew I was ready for true love.
Because I knew how important it was to first love myself, and all the amazing people who cherished the person I had become, I knew that’s what I needed more than anything. And if at any point I was going to meet someone, this person would love who I was regardless.
