You think you’re in love. Everything is going great. Why wouldn’t things naturally progress to the bedroom? The first few months are amazing and you are on cloud nine. Except, then things change. It’s not when you want anymore. When you’ve had enough and it hurts, there’s always “just one more.” Slowly, you realize that your “no” has gone unheard. You’ve started giving in because you thought no one else would love you. But, now I am happy. I am single. I am me. After a months, I can walk into work without shying away from the men there. Even though saying “no” when pressured makes me panic, I fight a little longer everyday. I am beginning to trust again like I did before. It was a year of pain, but now I’m looking forward to a year of freedom.
