I had a rough past myself. At my age, many people might laugh and assume I'm talking about school.
No. I struggle with depression, anxiety, and suicidal tendencies. I had a rough childhood and from 11-14, all hell broke loose in my life. Pretty much on a downhill slope. I understand how a rough past can easily shape a person, and how it might affect them negatively, and I'm willing to stand by them through it as a friend or a boyfriend.

My boyfriend was emotionally abused by his ex, she'd threaten to kill herself if he broke up with her, she'd hold a knife to her throat or send him pictures of herself with her legs dangling off a high building or bridge if he didn't do whatever she said. She was really manipulative and cruel and I had no idea I was even sort of friends with her! Now every time I freak out about somethingI am terrified I am reminding him or his ex but he's still so understanding. I was absolutely heart broken when my cat died and I told him I was "sorry for acting so crazy" and he just help me and said "You just had to watch your cat pass away unexpectedly! This is completely understandable to be freaking out over! this is nothing compared to what I used to deal with". Everyone has baggage I don't care how young you are, everyone does. I was attacked and stabbed and nearly raped a 15 and I have some issues my boyfriend has to deal with too. I have a scar on my arm and it pains him to look at it and know how I got it.
