EVENT: REFUSE TO ABUSE 5K 2014
I'm extremely passionate about this cause and here's why. I was in an abusive relationship for almost five years of my life. At first I didn't realize that it was abusive because it was all mental/emotional. We would fight and he'd call me names. The longer we were together, the worse it got. I was pushed around, headbutted, spit on, constantly reminded that I was ugly, fat and a slut (sorry for the language) The night we broke up he even threatened my life. He even controlled me. Manipulated me into abandoning friendships and familal relationships because all I needed was him right? He even cheated on me several times and made me feel like I was going crazy when I'd call him on it. The sad part is after awhile I started believing that I was worthless and I stayed through it all because I didn't think that anyone else would want to be with me. I honestly felt like I was trapped in hell. I will NEVER let someone treat me that way again and this run is me fighting back against domestic violence. No relationship should ever hurt. Please help me raise the money to help those who are in similar situations as I was. Even if it's just five bucks, every little bit helps. Thank you And spread the word!!!
