I had to end things finally with the quasi boyfriend. I had to tell him I would get a restraining order.

I am glad I finally allowed myself to yell (raised voice, respectful language) when he started to abuse me. I am glad I had enough presence of mind to NOT do what I usually do (freeze) and stick on the topic while he threw out every vile thing, accusations, blame, minimizing and anger...turning and not looking at me...interrupting and not listeng, interrogating and all the other verbal abuse games...

I told him I was not going to put up with the fabricated accusations and his anger and punishment over things that were false and the rest of the abuse....acting like I force him into the relationship when it;s he who begs me to come back every time with promises he never keeps...

I am glad I told him I was not going to stay to listen to anymore abuse.

I am glad I told him by implication, that he was no longer allowed to abuse me, by telling him I would get an RO.

i am glad I finally have established some sort of self protection.


Thank you god.
