Why Me? - November 10th 2011, 01:23 AM

When I was little my grandmother locked me in a closet for hours on end. Then when she would let me out she would hit me. I was only five at the time so of course I thought I was the one doing something wrong. My dad found out after I came home with a really bad black eye and filed a restraining order against her and they went to court over custody of me. Almost every relationship I have been in with a guy has been abusive. Some have been emotionally abusive others physically. All I can think is why me? What did I ever do to deserve this treatment? I'm I really that bad of a person?

Not at all. With what has happened in your past your trust and judgement in people was broken because you blindly trusted her (she was your grandma). You look for someone to keep you safe ans you are desperate to be love. It isn't your fault, it is a type of post traumatic stress disorder. What can help is to talk to some one (you can always talk to me and I can tall you my story sometime) and is to also get counseling. Hope this helps
