Nicki Minaj Gets Candid About Being In An Abusive Relationship
The female emcee opened up about a time when she was involved in an abusive relationship. Nicki Minaj did not hesitate to be honest and vocal about her past experiences, sharing that she used to be really ‘afraid.’
Of course, the star decided to share this part of her history as a way to help her fans recognize a toxic relationship and to insist that, instead of judging, they should offer ‘sound advice.’
‘When u see a woman in a toxic relationship, rather than laugh and say mean things, just try to offer sound advice from your heart and root for her to learn her worth. We’ve all been there. I saw my parents fight and argue nonstop and never divorce, so I thought this was normal behavior,’ the star shared with her followers.
Nicki mentioned that at the time, she lived with the idea that ‘love had to hurt.’
‘It’s not easy to leave. Especially in the world of Instagram where all people want to do is post relationship goal pics for attention. A man should make you feel safe, not afraid. I remember being really afraid to speak cause I never knew when that person would be in a particularly bad mood and I could say one wrong thing to get me hit. So the difference you see in me now is that feeling when a woman feels lifted up, appreciated, safe and unconditionally loved.’
The rapper pointed out that one generally wouldn’t let their mother, sister or best friend be treated in an abusive way since they love them.
As far as she is concerned, the same logic should be applied to oneself, for the sole reason that ‘you love YOU’ too.
