I'm not usually the kind of person to be this open, I'm not one to wrong others and be malicious. But there is this one thing that has been eating away at me these past few months, I've been portrayed as an evil, manipulative person by someone I once loved unconditionally and so very much. I never wanted to leave this person, until I saw the light. My family pulled me away from the abusive relationship I was in and showed me how I had been treated, at first my heart broke and I refused to believe them but when I read through screenshot after screenshot I started to see things from a different perspective. I had been in an emotionally abusive, toxic relationship for years. It had torn me away from my friends, made me go against my family, caused me to get into arguments and fall out with people who were once friends. I had to live lies to please this person. Most people don't understand the signs of abusive relationships and how much they can ruin a person. My confidence and self worth, gone. I was a shell of a person I once was, this is probably the hardest thing I've had to come to terms with, that I was once a happy person and now I'm fighting to get back to that, all because of a person I thought made me happy, helped me and loved me turned out to be a manipulative and abusive, control freak.
