She was my high school teacher

solidarity stories groomed

She was my high school teacher. Took me, and several other girls coming from bad situations in and told us we were family, that she loved us.

After a while, it changed. It didn't feel good anymore. I wasn't ready until very recently to hear from my therapist and friends that it was purposeful, that she knew what she was doing.

We were manipulated and groomed. It's been 5 years. It's time to end it and never go back. I'm scared, and despite my best efforts, I still love her. But, as it turns out, she doesn't love me.
