Hey! when i was younger I got touched by one of my uncles and ever since then i have felt like it was a mistake and no one will ever get me.
so about a year ago i got mixed up with a 21 year old and he said some stuff and I believed it. well that guy is in jail and for the past half a year I was living with my mom’s friend and he said he loved me and i believed it. but the first time he did something i had just gotten out of the shower and he came in the bathroom. i was in my towel and i thought he had come in to get something but he pushed himself onto me and well, i have had to deal with him coming in when ever he wants just to do that and so, after a while i thought that this is what love is.
this is what i have had to deal with most my life. but one night I told him he was hurting me and he said shut up and take it. then he choked me.
I don’t know what to do.
