#WhyIStayed Bcoz I was convinced "this can't B abuse coz it couldn't ever happen to me & that THIS time he'll change & love means staying"
#WhyIStayed Because I thought I was strong enough to take the abuse.
##whyileft because I had such an amazing support system that helped me through it all & I'll always be so grateful
I thought I deserved it. I knew my future daughter didn't. #WhyILeft
