I have never believed in love.
My parents abused me, and I was voted the ugliest girl in school.
I didn’t believe that I deserved love, and thought that nobody could ever truly love me.
My sophomore year came around I met this wonderful man.
He was amazing.
He was the first person to ever show me that I could be loved.
We didn’t date for very long because my parents made me end it. I was heartbroken.
Even though I wasn't allowed to see him, we loved each other, and we tried to message as much as we could without getting caught.
That whole year I was the happiest I had ever been. He helped me through so much and made me realize I was worth something.
The thought of losing him because of my parents was too much to handle. I overdosed and my parents found out. They didn’t want to take me to the hospital.
At the hospital, the doctor asked about my home life. When I told them what was going on, they said I was being abused.
We were able to find a way for me not to go home, and I went to live with my grandparents.
The abuse was no longer a part of my life, and I was able to talk to my amazing boyfriend as freely as I wanted to.
Today I am still with him, and it just goes to show that no matter what you are going through, you can always find a happy ending.
