Know your worth NULL

I was 17 when I met a guy, I thought he was the best thing that ever happen to me, we dated for 3 years and I became pregnant with a beautiful baby girl, the guy and I was on and off he then started to change he cheated on me while I was pregnant stressing me out hurting me emotionally and physically, he started to disrespect me a lot but since I was having his child I felt like I needed to over look what he did to me because I wanted my family to be together I wanted my daughter to grow up with her father and I in her life as a family so I stayed, after a year of me having my baby he started to beat on me and find ways to hurt me if I didn't do what he said, he would lie to his family and but on a perfect show for them and so would I because I wanted things to work out n I felt like if I stayed he would change one day, he didn't it got worse he then started to mess around with different girl n I would leave but he would always pull me back in by saying his daughter would hate me if I left him and how we should try and be a family n raise our daughter together, he left me for another girl and told me that no one would want me because my body had changed after having a baby and no one would want me because I'm to skinny and don't have a big butt, he made me feel like I wasn't nothing,at the age 21 in 2015 I decide I was done and I felt in my heart I was done but because I didn't want to be with different guy i went back to him because [A] I wanted my family to work [B] because I didn't want to be all around with different guys I wanted to stick it out with someone I been with for years cause in my eyes we were married he left me to be with another girl and I forgave him again, after a week later we end up getting together and really thinking about being a family he was gonna join the army and then I get a call saying he thinks he has something he think he caught something from the girl my heart dropped I felt like I was dying slow and that I took my health away for a guy who didn't even love me I should have loved my self more I should have left after I found out the first time he cheated I shouldn't have stayed because we had a child together I felt like God wanted me to see he wasn't no good and to find out he gave me Herpes and it still go through my mind and it hurts me soo.... Bad because I feel like this one guy that I loved so much that I had a child with that I thought would love me and my daughter has destroyed my life forever I can never be happy with someone else all because I loved someone to much to leave, the sad part is I tried to co-parent with this guy and he still try and find way to hurt me by telling other people I have herpes and how he's gonna make sure I don't ever love again he says if he can't have me no one else can he then beats me again and end up in jail this time, he gets out and say that it's my fault he cheated its my fault because I should have had sex with him whenever he wanted though my life has changed I want to help girls who think they are not worth anything because a guy they love wants to see you hurt because they are scared someone will love u better then they did so they try to install these things in your head so you would feel like nothing but you are so much more then something and don't ever let someone bring your life down if that person love you they will make sure your life is happy, I thank god for my daughter because without her I would be a lost soul I truly would have gave up this has made me a stronger person and know that God will not out u through nothing you couldn't handle and listen to the signs know your worth more then that love yourself, I may have lost some people in my life but I feel like if that person loved me they would stick it out with me, I feel so much stronger in life motivated to live and do better for my child as a single mother I will continue to show my daughter love n respect so that she can know that if someone don't respect u they need to be dismissed out your life know your worth
