On Having Been in an Abusive Relationship

  1. Responding with "OK" every time someone tells me they love me
  2. Flinching whenever guys hug me
  3. Constantly wondering if I deserved it
  4. "Will anyone ever actually love me?"
    The answer is: People already do.
  5. Crying in the shower two years later
  6. Remembering his stupid fucking birthday every year
    It was yesterday
  7. Never wanting to have sex again
  8. Always finding something wrong with guys I go on dates with
    It always ends up being the last date
  9. "I think I'm ready for a relationship"
    No I'm not
  10. Knowing I deserve better but still hoping he'll text me
