This is such a hard thing to do, to publicly air my dirty laundry. Today i sat in a court room to hear how long the father of my 1-year-old child gets for ABH.
ABH because no bones were broken, he used the excuse that he had much to drink even though there were other times and he was sober.
He was sentenced for 21 months in jail, but due to our legal system and reductions he is apparently entitled to, on a good behaviour he would be out in 6 months and this for me isn’t good.
Note that this isn’t a pity post as i already feel stronger and better than i ever did but i will not be silenced by this man or any other man in my life. I wouldn’t forgive myself if he ever did it to someone else.
He is the most manipulative, controlling, possessive person. And in the next 6 months he could be walking freely looking for his next target.
Please, if you are with someone who is controlling you, making you feel scared, trying to stop you from working or making friends, i know it is hard but leave. Take the kids, leave the material stuffs.
So many times i felt the urge to talk to someone what was going on but now i realise that there are other people in pains out there that needs help. Try to talk to someone.
