In the end, he decided I was no longer needed and just cut off communication all together.
As time went by, I could just feel the cage walls closing in, the door shutting and hearing the “click” of a lock in my head. I wasn’t allowed to talk to anyone, not even my girlfriends I had for 11 years.
My phone was checked to make sure I wasn’t talking to anyone but him and that no one was trying to talk to me.
I didn’t have the chance to explain to him that I told my ex boyfriend that we could not talk anymore and that I didn’t want to.
My boyfriend felt angry and lied to, perhaps betrayed.
All the people around me were saying that I shouldn’t let him do that, blaming him and telling me I need to get out of the situation before it got worse.
