    Wow, this really stirs up my emotions and I can totally relate. Thanks for your vulnerability in sharing. I know many people that are ashamed to share these types of stories but they are so helpful to others that face the same situations.

    Wow this story is heart-wrenching. I feel for this so much; I was the same way at age 18. My boyfriend told me all kinds of things – that he was in the military, had been overseas, had PTSD… that he loved me. I prayed for him every day for five whole months all to find out that 1) he had cheated and 2) everything he told me was a flat out lie. It broke my heart,but a man named Michael was there for me to pick up the pieces. Now, thanks to God, Michael and I have been happily married for almost four years now. I hope it worked out between the couple; i definitely want to hear more. Thank you for sharing this story.

      D’Ann I really appreciate you reading this. I’m glad it captured your attention. It is kind of a middle snippet to a book I am working on. There is a lot to it and it is definitely intense.

    Thank you for sharing your story. 💜
    This is just one reason why it is so important we do everything we can to build up our children’s self-esteem. Kids need to learn their self-worth at a young age and have it reinforced over and over again. It’s a really hard job but we need to keep fighting the fight.

      Shellie, exactly!! You get it! It is so important for kids to know their self-worth. Having a supportive and influential father figure in their life makes a world of difference on how they will allow themselves to be treated in relationships of their own. There are so many things I see now that I am older on why I did the things that I did.
      Thanks for reading.

    Very creative piece. I wonder how long she is going to stick around before realizing and believing she deserves better.
