Chat with Melissa Holmes who was 25 yrs old when she met my first abuser. Everything was perfect for 5 years. When he proposed, she said YES; however, the minute she said, “Yes!” she noticed things starting to change slowly.
Two years after they were married things, his obsessive behavior started to change the marriage and relationship negatively. The arguing began, along with the stalking, disrespect, and physical abuse.
One day after she became fed up with nowhere to go, she left and took her survival chances. He started threatening to have her killed. Instead, he met his untimely death in May 2003 as a result of asthma. He never got a chance make good on his promise.
After Melissa remained single for 5 years, she met her second abuser who was much worst. One year he broke her nose on my birthday; choked her; pulled her hair, pulled a gun out on her; and threatened to kill her and sit at home with her body until her son came home from school. He wanted to see the expression on her son’s face when he found my body.
At that minute, Melissa knew she needed a game plan. She moved back to New York safely with her son 4 years ago. He stalked her for a year of the 4 years.
Melissa stated, “I have never experienced such brutal treatment but knew I had to remain strong for my kids. I learned to turn my weakness into my strengths and Love Shouldn’t Hurt was born, and helping others in dv [sic] situations to know they’re not alone in this fight. Someone does care and her name is Melissa Holmes.”

In light of what's going on with Lil Kim, and all of the alterations that she's made to her skin, it has me thinking.....For people who gets plastic surgery, wear excessive makeup, weaves, bleach their skin, get butt injections etc, Is there a bigger/deeper meaning for them doing so? Lil Kim explained that she never thought that she was pretty, because people use to talk about her. Other people have been accussed of trying to be white or shaming their own race. What are your thoughts about this topic? I think that in certain cases, it can be much deeper than it appears.
At what point does physical enhancements/alterations become too much? Is there an identity crisis, of those who feels a NEED to enhance their look, to excessive degrees? Are we trying to conform to someone else's standard of beauty? Are we upset with our bodies, and who we are, physically?
