I am pretty much addicted to Bar Rescue, and it is all cumbermyspock's fault.
emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.
this is important because so many people don’t know this
The Harry Potter movies added many scenes that I disagree with.
This is not one of them.
you know what you could have instead of children?
- a nice house
- a nice car
- really nice shoes
- open weekends
- vacations that aren’t “child-friendly”
- nice things in general
- basically whatever you want because children are expensive and material things don’t grow up to resent you
"Too many books?" I believe the phrase you’re looking for is "not enough bookshelves".
Public service reminder that you can be scared of crossing someone’s temper even if you’ve never seen them “hulk out”. Being scared isn’t about a fear of physical violence. A person doesn’t need to scream in YOUR face to make you second guess yourself, and color all of your interactions by wondering if what you want to say is worth getting them angry over.
HEED ME. That’s not buddies. And just because you were friends, even family once doesn’t makes you a liar, or two-faced, or a hypocrite. YOU TRUSTED THEM. YOU LOVED THEM. But it wasn’t healthy. It’s never too long or late to realize that and cut them out of your life. You are not the problem, no matter how they talk about you after the fact. Them that hide their emotional entitlement and emotional abuse behind their “temper” are.
