What they hate is their own lack of self-control, so they control you. What they despise is your strength. What they hold in utmost contempt is your refusal to be controlled and to accept their lie that it's your fault. — Bryant McGill
#truelove . Controlling assholes are for weak, desperate bitches. A woman of true worth waits for the man of her dreams, she doesn't settle, she doesn't pretend, and she doesn't trade her wings for status ✌
I gave you that power because I loved you and trusted you completely. I have never been closer to anyone else and after everything we had been through, I never could imagine you could be so cold and heartless towards me.
“An abuser can seem emotionally needy. You can get caught in a trap of catering to him, trying to fill a bottomless pit. But he’s not so much needy as entitled, so no matter how much you give him, it will never be enough. He will just keep coming up with more demands because he believes his needs are your responsibility, until you feel drained down to nothing.” ― Lundy Bancroft, Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men
Be careful and choose wisely what you allow to occupy the stage of your dominate thoughts, for truly the quality of your thinking determines the happiness of your life. “Man is made or unmade by himself. In the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace.” –James Allen (from his inspiring book ‘As A Man Thinketh’)
