STORY CORNER: DIARY OF AN ABUSED LOVER (CHAPTER 15)

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

30th November 2016 This is agonising. I haven’t actually gotten around to phoning Marcus back yet. I’ll make him wait so he knows he isn’t the one controlling things. When I contact him, I’ll make sure I’m firm and have that no nonsense, authoritative tone in my voice so he knows I’m not to be […]

19th November 2016 We got quite a lot accomplished today, Brandon and I. He’s a stickler for time. I was fifteen minutes late meeting him outside Yamaha Music (but that was the train’s fault, not mine), but luckily he didn’t berate me too much. I should definitely go in there more regularly, rather than simply […]

31st October 2016 I can’t believe it – I actually like working on Mondays! I never thought I would ever say that. Everyone is just so nice and it is a great feeling working as part of an awesome team! I just need to try to leave work on time. I don’t mind doing extra […]

24th October 2016 Today was my first day at my work training course in Eastbourne. It’s been pretty intensive so far but I’m glad I’m on it. The courses away are part of the reason I decided chose this job role with this company over the other I was offered. I need my independence. It […]

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

29th April 2016 It’s been a whole week since I’ve written in you Diary. I’m just fed up of mentioning that g*t! These past few months my diary entries have been completely dominated by him, and he’s absolutely not worth it. He’s not worth losing my friends over. I will try to make amends with […]

21st April 2016 Sorry Diary. I couldn’t bring myself to write anything else last night. My heart is completely shattered into tiny shards. I have lost my boyfriend and I’ve been completely humiliated in front of my friends. They are trying to give me some space – I didn’t see them at breakfast. My head […]

17th April 2016 I’ve never been so excited – tomorrow will start the best few days of my life! Days to spend with my boyfriend, away from judgemental parents and family and meddling Chantal. And the opportunity to EXPLORE!!! Marcus can’t get a room for tomorrow, since the hotel is fully booked, but will join […]

4th April 2016 I’ve decided to continue writing in you, dear Diary. I just couldn’t bring myself to write the same old painful stuff over and over again. My situation hasn’t changed since Marcus was kicked out of the house. He must be really mad. I still haven’t heard anything from him. I’d love to […]

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

21st March 2016 Keeping secrets is sooooo hard! I’m constantly welling with excitement and have to try and suppress it. It’s best not to tell anyone until things are finalised. It’s been a very busy few days (sorry Diary – I know I’ve neglected you!), viewing properties. They are depressingly expensive but we won’t give […]

25th February 2016 Chantal has definitely cheered me up! It was nice seeing her again. Sometimes it feels like it’s just been too long! She’s helping to keep me on the straight and narrow. According to her, Marcus is just a waste of space and is trying to ruin things for me. She says I […]
