I was violated as a teen by a family member.
My first boyfriend of 7 years was physically abusive. I did not have the courage to leave until I went to music school, and found my worth.
He threatened to kill himself if I would not yield to his former control.
I let him go. He lives today without me, and I am free.
I wrote a song about my former abusive to help me gain the courage to heal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sk5AlX2w59M
