Don’t Be Afraid To Stand Up For Yourself 

Yesterday I had my last court case against my ex. I filed a criminal complaint because he broke my IPad and piano back in August. I had people tell me not to press charges because they didn’t think I would win and that it would be stressful for the both of us. But I wanted to do what was right and what brought justice. I knew what happened that day and night and no else did. Except for my ex, maybe, he was passed out drunk.

I went into the courtroom with confidence that I would win. I had in my mind that I would leave joyfully with the results going my way. I watched a lot of law of attraction videos that morning to get my mind in the right place.

During the hearing, my lawyer and I persevered through everything my ex’s lawyer brought up, each time proving that they were wrong. When everyone had a chance to share their side of the story, the magistrate had ultimately sided with me and it led to me winning the court case. After months of court cases, my hard work was finally rewarded. It’s not easy going through the court system, but I felt it was important to seek justice and to stand up for what is right no matter what anybody else says. I felt so relieved after the court case.

I have learned a lot from this experience with the relationship and going through the court system. I have now learned how to spot when a guy is lying to me or manipulating me to get what he wants. There was a domestic violence case the state put against him for him giving me and his child bruises, but he made me get it dismissed by using threats and empty promises. I know now to walk away whenever a guy tries to touch me in that way again. If there’s ever any domestic violence in your relationship, then I encourage you to walk away. You are worth so much more.

I have also learned when to leave a relationship and to never look back. There will never be a day I won’t miss my ex. He has proven to me how much of a liar he really is and how winning the court case proved to everyone that he is a liar. The one song that’s getting played over in my head is Kelly Clarkson’s Never Again. Never again will I go back to the relationship.


This experience has also taught me about resilience, standing up for what you believe in, and to keep my friends and family close. I couldn’t have done this without the support of my friends and family. Now, I just want to do everything to give back to them.

I wrote this so you could learn from my story. I wouldn’t want anyone going through what I went through. Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. both stood up for their beliefs and they became game changers for many lives.  I hope by writing this it makes your life better. Thank you for reading. Till’ next time!
