it’s also very important to recognize patterns of emotional abuse. apologies and resentment of actions and self pity are common ways to manipulate you into forgiving them and helping them assume power in a situation again. it’s extremely hard to let go of someone you love but people like that don’t truly love you, they love the control. protect, love and care for yourself.
Those feels. Almost describes my current situation perfectly… :’(
- Intimacy. Hold my waist. Stroke my neck. Kiss my forehead. Hold my hand.
- Maturity. Patience is amazing. A prize will come to you when the time is right. Its called falling in love. Waiting is hard. But worth it.
- Honesty. I don’t care what you’ve done. I care about what you will do in the future. Be honest with me, I’ll be honest with you.
- Care. Because not many people give a crap about anything anymore.
