I Love the Way You Lie: NaBloPoMo

Did you ever tell a lie you had to keep repeating in order to not blow your cover?

Unfortunately, yes I have. The circumstances were extraordinary. Extraordinarily bad. I was in an abusive relationship at the time.
I thought that if I convinced him to move out of state with me then he would not be close to my kids. So I told people that this is what I wanted. I told him that I wanted to move away with him. I told his mother that I wanted to move. She tried to talk me out of it. I do feel terrible for lying to her.
It was a means to an end. Luckily, it was not the end of me or my children. Not everyone is as blessed as I was to have a new beginning.
If I had to do it all over, I would have gotten help in a different way. At the time, I didn’t know that domestic violence shelters existed.

So if you know someone that is being abused, here is the link to the National Domestic Violence Hotline. The phone number is 1-800-799-7233. If you have questions, they have answers. Everything that is shared will stay confidential.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes. View all posts by holley4734
