We met at church, and he was doting, caring, charming. Things slowly changed. He began to turn me against my family and my friends; He convinced me that they did not have my best interest in mind but that he did. During the whole relationship, I felt scared, depressed, suicidal, alone. After, I felt relieved, yet scared due to stalking.
Today, I am safe. I talk about my experience to help me heal from it.
To anyone experiencing abuse... Nobody that has your “best interest” in mind will turn you against those who have been by you from the start.
