So you're lying in bed grinning ear to ear because that one super hot guy that you've been interested in for a while finally asks you out. But shortly after you find out that he's going to be moving away. We've all heard that long distance relationships never work out. But there's that 1% that finds true love and overcomes that distance, right? At least that's what you tell youself as you cry yourself to sleep, afraid to lose the man that you've fallen in love with.
In early 2016 I packed up what I could fit in my car and drove off while my husband was at work. Not once have I regretted my decision. It was a decision that came after three and a half years of a terrible marriage and eight and a half years of slow psychological torture. My mom was an emotional abuser and for some reason that wasn’t enough abuse in my life, I married someone that did the same thing to me, and I stayed too long.
