a piece of advice from somebody who’s been through this a few times already: if somebody gives you a bad vibe trust your gut

notstandingstillsdisease:

Pro tip: any relationship can be abusive, not just romantic ones. Don’t let anyone give you crap for cutting abusers out of your life, no matter who they are. It took me 26 years to get my abusers out of my life. While I didn’t have a choice for the first 18 years, I can’t believe I waited so long to see the problems and act on them. The view on the other side is amazing.

just bc someone has low self esteem or has depression doesnt mean theyre not fucking disgusting and manipulative and i keep having to learn this lesson over and over

If someone uses their mental illnesses as an excuse to hurt you without apologizing you get the fuck out of there. My abuser would use it as an excuse and make me feel guilty for my hurt feelings because it wasn’t his fault he was cruel to me.

It’s not about men or women.

Nobody should ever hit anyone.

Nobody should ever rape anyone.

Nobody should ever murder anyone.

Nobody should ever beat anyone.

Nobody should ever threaten anyone.

Nobody should ever insult anyone.

Nobody should ever make anyone uncomfortable.

Nobody should ever touch anyone without their consent.

Nobody should ever steal from anyone.

Nobody should ever humiliate anyone.

When you talk to new partners about your ex, you justify it with “but they didn’t mean to” and “we were both in a bad place” and “it wasn’t that bad” even though none of that changes what happened and how toxic it was.
