I never thought love would leave me broken but it seems like every time I give my heart... it's taken but never returned. I am always afraid of men ... they seem to take, take, take but then when you need them... they are not there. All my past relationships are that way and I never see it changing. I end up broken beyond repair and I have to try to piece myself together. Love isn't always a grand thing. It can be more painful than you can imagine.
My first husband, I didn't love him at all. I only married him because I was bored and wanted to be away from home but soon... I came to regret that decision. I was abused in every day (except sexually, THANK GOD) but I freed myself from that living hell.
My second husband, I loved him for a while... until I saw what he had become... he changed completely. I grew to dislike him greatly and even loathe him most of the time. He was selfish and constantly emotionally/verbally abusing me. He controlled me, manipulated me... and it was 13 years of hell that I stayed in because I felt TRAPPED. Thankfully I freed myself from this hell as well.
Any other woman would have remained BROKEN but I am not. I was broken... until I picked myself back up, dusted off, and swore that NO MAN would ever HAVE POWER over ME ever AGAIN!
