I had a 3.7 GPA at the end of high school, and besides my last year of college, I held a 3.5. But to him, I was stupid. He would tell me all the time that I was ditzy and bubbly, but would reassure me that it wasn't a bad thing, and that that's just how my personality is.
And then as time went on, he would humiliate me in front of his family and would call me stupid. He would tell me how his sister thought I was a dumb blonde, even though she never received her high school diploma. So, I began shutting myself up. Anytime I was with his family, I just kept to myself.
For some reason, I let him treat me like I was insignificant for a long time.
So, to the guy I dated when I was 19, FIRST is for you.
