Boyfriend Would Send Her Photos Of Her Bruises Just To Keep Her In Check
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. – Ephesians 5:25
Imgur user AdmittedIHadAProblem has shared her story with the world in order to shed some light into domestic abuse violence. She is exposing what her ex-boyfriend had done to her, and hopefully more women would rise up to the abuse.

The photo she shared on social media shows a woman with bruises under her eyes and above her eyebrows:
This is the aftermath of one of the many beatings I sustained at the hands of my ex. He would send me this picture to remind me of what he could get away with… Always saying he could do what he wanted and be gone before the cops showed up.
She had called police numerous times, but her ex always found a way to manipulate her and for her to stay in his life.
“I had a drug problem at the time and no shelters would let me stay if I couldn’t pass a drug test.”
When she finally drew up the courage to leave the relationship, she found that her ex-boyfriend had died of an overdose. She has now been sober for a year.
This is me now. Despite the lack of a smile in this pic, I am happier now than I’ve been in a long time. Less than 2 months after I left, my ex died of an overdose. I was lucky enough to get out and survive.
According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, more than 10 million men and women are abused by their partner each year.
