Stepping away from an emotionally, mentally, and physically abusive partner can take all that you have. But victims usually have a tough time telling their story even years after the occurrences. Even simply talking about what they went through becomes so traumatic that they can't bear the thought of the world knowing what happened.
But Imgur user 'Krissykross' bravely came out with her story three years later. She shared a bunch of screenshots of text messages that her ex-husband, Adam, had sent to her and they will burn into your flesh.
These messages are in fact, terrorising but she is receiving a lot of comfort and support from all the users. Nearly 600 thousand people have viewed the screenshots, and many have commented positive things for support as well.
Let's check out what the poor soul went through.
Here's some massively controlling displayed by the ex-husband.
This brave Imgur user wasn't able to tell her story to the world for a long time. She had suffered but she was also pretty embarrassed about it. She held her head up high and took charge of her life. That's when she decided to open up about her abusive ex-husband.
He helped her in changing her flat tire one time and the ex-husband thought she was sleeping with him.
The fact that he kept 'traps' in her bed to figure out if she had slept there the previous night clearly shows how much he wanted to manipulate her.
She would visit her mother every couple of years. Apparently, that one time she had a huge bruise on her arm where her ex-husband bit her. The bruise was pretty big and it lasted for nearly a month. In this time, the mother noticed it and also it was photographed by the authorities after she decided to turn him in.
But she finally came out with her story and did the brave thing.
He made her call him at midnight everyday.
She suffered for a whole lot of time and she was shot down by people close to her each time she asked for help.
She made the best decision of her life then.
After three long years, she can say that she's doing much better and has the confidence to run her life. She may not have found her soul mate, but she's taking it slow and being cautious.
