So thankful he's gone

He'd verbally, mentally, and physically abuse me. I was only 15. After a year and a half he left me; for someone else of course. However for five months after that he would still find a way to contact me and verbally/mentally abuse me. I never saw it as abuse, not until recently. I now understand what he did was wrong, and that it never really was a relationship. He has finally left me alone after seven months of not being together. I am healing and have found another guy who actually treats me right. Some times I become confused and don't know how I should be treated, because he never treated me right. I am learning day to day and it is wonderful. I am glad I now know what I was missing out on when with my ex. It is what I deserve. Finally.
