I was in an abusive relationship

I was in an abusive relationship, both physically and mentally, and was made to hate myself and isolate myself from friends.

Now I have gotten out of that relationship and am very happy, but he continues to find new ways to message me or have his friends message me.

He was a compulsive liar who is now dating my ex best friend, even though while we dated he said, “he wished she wouldn’t have failed at killing herself.” Why can’t he just leave me be?



  1. I’m so glad you got out of that relationship and now are feeling happy, Truly, I’m so happy to hear that.
    I’ve never had to deal with someone like that and I’m sorry you have to.
    Have you noticed the time between each message/contact gets further apart? That can be a sign that you are on the right track and if so, keep on that exhausting grind, time will get you there.. If the gap between the messages is closing in, I would assume he is still expecting something from you.
    If hes just out to push your buttons, don’t react to it.
    Stay strong and remember, it will pass.

  2. It’s hard…very hard. I’ve been out of an abusive relationship now for three weeks. They like power. They like control. It’s what gives them that boost of adrenaline they need to function. When no one wants them, they turn to the person they know they could always control-you. They will message and call on their time, hoping you’re waiting for them, and when you answer that means they won. Don’t let him win. You’re strong. It may not feel or seem like it, but you can do this. Tell yourself that everyday and eventually you’ll start to believe it. I wish I could be more of a support but this website would delete any contact info I post. It’s gonna suck and and it’s gonna hurt, because I’m sure you still care for them, but hold on. You’ve come this far, and you’re not with them, so you’re winning right now. Hugs.
