Someone is Hurting Me - I need Help

He says he loves me. He says he needs me and wants me. But, instead, he hurts me. Instead of respecting me and making me feel safe, he

  • Takes out his frustrations by smacking me around.
  • Hits me in front of our children.
  • Forces me to have sex with him.
  • Tells me he’ll leave me unless I do what he wants.
  • Verbally abuses me by calling me names and telling me I’m nothing without him.
  • Brags about his control over me to his friends.

I fall asleep crying and wake up to more pain. Every day, I loose a little more self-respect. How do I make this stop? How do I walk away? Where can I find safety? How do I protect my children? Does anyone out there care enough to help me?
