This painfully honest essay is a real gift. Thank you for mentioning how you began to imitate your ex's disrespect for your boundaries. It reminds me of a friend with a similar story, only in her case the situation became physical and dangerous. It's good that you are out of that relationship. It's also good that you were kind enough and brave enough to share your experience with the rest of us here.
