I became addicted to pornography at 12yrs old. growing up I didn't feel loved by my parents and I was very rarely praised or encouraged. There's a hole in my heart, longing to know what love is and to know that I am beautiful and I have value. At 18 yrs old I was sexually, physically and emotionally abused by a guy I dated who also tried raping me several times. I've been fighting to break free of my pornography and masturbation addiction but I can't win so far. I need love from people, acceptance. It's really hard but I'm going to continue to fight.
