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.
“"I love women," is not a get out of jail free card. Thicke pulled the same bullshit when he was accused of degrading women in "Blurred Lines": "When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women," he said. How nice of you to say so, Mr. Thicke. Alas, your work shows the opposite to be true. I am fairly certain many of the men who buy sex and consume porn also think they do it because they really, really, love women. NOPE. You love women like I love wine — as something I consume selfishly for my personal benefit and as a product.”—Meghan Murphy (No, “female-appreciation” is not the same thing as feminism)
What is the point in me changing myself, if you will never like me.
There are many people who are perfectly happy with how I am
I will.keep facing brave and acting for nothing.
But I will NOT let you back in.
You burnt down everything I built and laughed in my face, the matches still in your hands.
I might love you.
But you don’t own me.
You NEVER gave anything back.
Name one time when you gave anything to me.
Just even ONCE.
