This is a short story on an abusive relationship. Basically you'll either a) get the message or b) crack up laughing.

I felt shoked with the first hit. It reminded me of my father and ex boyfriend. Its hard to get out of a relationship like that, but once you do it, its a relief. Very good story.

SURVIVAL: Fear about her own and her childrenâEUTMs safety if she leaves.
ECONOMIC DEPENDENCE: Can she survive on one income?
FEAR: Of being alone, fear that she cannot cope with home and children by herself.
PARENTING: Wanting a father for the children.
RELIGION: Pressure to keep the family together.
FAMILY: Extended family pressure to keep the family together.
LOYALTY: If he had cancer, sheâEUTMd stick by him.
RESCUE: If she stays, she can âEUoesaveâEU him and help him âEUoeget better.âEU
FEAR OF HIS SUICIDE: He says heâEUTMll kill himself if she leaves.
DENIAL: âEUoeItâEUTMs really not so bad.âEU
LOVE: She loves him, and he is quite often loving and lovable when heâEUTMs not being abusive.
IDENTITY: Many women feel that they need a man in order to be complete.
SHAME, EMBARRASSMENT AND HUMILIATION: She doesnâEUTMt want anyone to know.
LOW SELF-ESTEEM: After years of being criticized by her abuser, she believes that it must be her fault, she must deserve it, sheâEUTMll never find anyone better, âEUoea little love is better than no love at all.âEU

That's why they usually stay with their abusive partner.

I... uh...

Must admit.. I cracked up laughing until I got to the end, and then got the message.
...It had to be a girl who posted this.. can't imagine a guy doing it..

Grats for the amazing message delivering.. I found this animation very deeply beautiful for it's music too...


I feel like shit

Firts time i told i love you: Good, she loves me too, now what... again?
Second time i told i love you: What!? What just happened!?
After a while: Oh Jesus Christ, her face, this is horrible, why i am doing this!?
When all ended i was like: Wow.........Just.....Just wow...

I get the message, when I think that this happens indeed, it makes really me sad, and i don't find it funny, in any way, i found no reason to laugh of this... Excuse me for not being able to contain the tears...

Really touching, you delivered the message really well, i found this sad and reflexing, great flash, i give you 10 stars


It really shocked me, I felt like crap watching this, yet I couldn't stop. It got me thinking, how when little kids don't know how to get a girls attention, they usually steal her stuff or hit her or something. I guess some boys never grow up.
