My dream of my "perfect man" was over within a year. I had turned 22 years old, and my relationship with Mark had turned sour. I found out that he had been sexually abused by his dad when he was a child and physically abused as well. He began to abuse me verbally after the first 6 months we were together and he also began to become violent around me, hitting cupboard cabinets in his camper when we were out on weekend trips together. He never hit me, but he wanted to, so instead he punched the cabinet by my head. I had never dealt with my own anger issues and I began cursing him, calling him names, and throwing things around the camper. We decide to call it quits as he felt he was going to hurt me. He drove off, never looking back and my heart was broken. My dream of my "perfect one" was over. I continued to live at home with my abuser parents, and working with my mom until I hit the age of 25. I went to cooking school for one year and then at the age of 26 got a job in the Grand Canyon, Arizona for a one year contract. I went to the Grand Canyon with the idea that I could end it all. I could end the pain. I rarely talked to anyone while working there and had almost committed suicide several times. It was just a matter of stepping on the gas peddle of my car and going over the edge, never to return. Something always stopped me, and so I sat outside after my shifts late at night, on a tiny balcony looking at the stars, and cried, grieved and hated myself, hated my life, hated what my parents did to me, to each other, to my siblings. I hated my body, I hated being a woman, I hated being vulnerable. I hated the abuse I suffered, and the body memories of my brother raping me as a child. My contract came to an end and I went back home to New Mexico to my old abuser's place.
