Continued doing something after I said “stop”
Told me I should look or dress a different way
Insulted people of a certain gender or race
Gotten angry when I speak to other guys
Been upset when I go out on the town without him
Gotten angry when I hang out with other guys
Accused me of cheating on him
Cheated on me
Flirted with other women in front of me
After spending some time on TwoX and Relationships just now, I just felt the need to say this. So many people (women and men) have written posts saying, essentially “my boyfriend/girlfriend is [doing something that’s very obviously abuse to anyone besides the person posting], am I wrong?” and it just makes me want to cry. No, you poor souls, you are not wrong! Nobody’s loving partner should make them feel that way or do those things to them!
Love should not hurt! Love should not make you scared or feel worthless!” - Ms__F of reddit
These words needed a signal boost.
I did a 50 minute work out video (FitnessBlender.com) and I can’t walk right now. My legs are jelly. I will now lay bedridden on an anime binge.
Now the question is: Do I do day 2 tomorrow? Do I wait a day or two because I’m a big baby?
I’m ok with being a big baby.
