A young woman spoke out about how she was beaten violently by her boyfriend at the time – and he even forced her to practice so that she didn't & # 39; thick & # 39; would become.
Gennady Sharpe, 27, said that she fell head over heels after starting her sales career and within a few months they started living together.
But when they reached the six-month mark, the New Zealand woman revealed how their relationship changed completely and that her partner was getting more and more control.
Gennady Sharpe, 27, revealed that she had hastily turned to the older man after starting her sales career and met within a few months – but things quickly changed.
& # 39; I vividly remember the first time he hit me – I remember lying on the floor in the fetal position until it was over, & # 39; she said (pictured after she was attacked)
& # 39; He started forcing me to go to the gym because he didn't want me to get fat, & # 39; Gennady continued Love What Matters.
& # 39; And if I & # 39; force & say, I mean that he called me all names under the sun until I was in deep tears and would leave the house. & # 39;
She said his controlling nature affected all aspects of her life, including limiting her portions to small sizes, choosing her clothes, and how she would style her hair.
Her weight quickly transformed under the imposed regime and she said her friends were becoming suspicious about her relationship with the man.
& # 39; My friends were shocked at how small I became and how quickly my appearance changed. They started asking questions: "Is he treating her well?" "Does he have her under control?" She said.
& # 39; I vividly remember the first time he hit me – I remember lying on the floor in the fetal position until it was over. & # 39;
The young woman who was violently beaten by her ex-boyfriend and forced to train so that she did not get fat (see photo on the left and this month on Instagram) is now an inspiration for victims of domestic violence all over the world after appearing on a reality TV -program
After the conclusion of the show, she decided to tell her story about abuse and gave others the power to know that there is a way out of relationships the way she endured
But despite the fact that she turned up to work with a black eye, Gennady said she would apologize for her injuries and knocked away those who could help her.
& # 39; If people knew, they would tell me to leave him and I wasn't ready for that, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; If you are the person involved, it is a whole new level of control that you really do not know how to escape or understand. & # 39;
Towards the end she said that the abuse is becoming more frequent until she had broken ribs and a broken hand and opened herself up to her boss.
After finally breaking off her relationship after two and a half years, Gennady realized that her new drive was to help those who suffered domestic violence.
& # 39; I have done research into mental and physical abuse in New Zealand. This happens in every social and ethnic group, she wrote.
& # 39; We need to make people think and talk about this. The more aware, the less it happens. & # 39;
