I told my girlfriend about how abusive my father was to me. Until I was 15 he would physically and emotionally abuse me. I'm 17 now and am living with my mom. But when i told her about what he did I started crying at one point because of how bad things really were. She actually lay there with me all night. Just talking to me, playing with my fingers, calming me down, wiping my cheeks, just everything. I've actually feel as though she loves me unconditionally.
