Jana Kramer is reflecting on her past as she moves towards the future.

The 38-year-old shared a message about the alleged abuse she once endured from a romantic partner.

Noting that for a long time, she believed she "deserved it."

"I was so full of shame," Jana wrote on Instagram Oct. 1.

"I was made to feel like I had no one, and no one would believe me and that the reason I would be choked or hit was because I was bad."

The Michigan native paired her message with a throwback photo of her and her mom, Nora Kramer.

I don't remember the excuses that I told people when I flew home to escape my abuser.

About the cuts and scrapes on my shoulder and arms, or why my ribs were hurting," Jana wrote.

"But when I look at this photo that's all I see. I see a broken girl who was weeks prior pinned to the ground while the man that 'loved' me was strangling me saying that he was going kill me."
