Have you ever reached a point where you’re tired of feeling alone, scared, trapped in the hopelessness of a toxic relationship?
Well, that’s my life. I’m stuck in this house, trapped in this life. I thought things would get better once my father died, but I was wrong. Allowing my boyfriend to move only made matters worse.
I spend each day cooking and cleaning, utterly dependent on my alcoholic mother and crazy boyfriend. With each day that passes, I feel more and more hopeless, and I’m scared this cycle of misery will never end.
My father abused my mother, and now my boyfriend is abusing me. Do I accept that this life is my destiny? Or is there a way out for my newborn son and me?
If you liked the suspense of Sleeping with the Enemy by Nancy Price or the bravery shown in Stephanie Land’s The Maid, you’ll enjoy the short story, Anna, Wake Up.
