I think this when I'm around guys I think. When he stops texting me, I must have annoyed him. When he hurts me, I must have made him mad. When he sexually abuses me, I must have asked for it. I think I do this a lot to give myself a sense of control in a world that is determined to give me none.
Women live lives of continual apology. They are born and raised to take the blame for other people's behavior. If they are treated without respect, they tell themselves that they have failed to earn respect. If their husbands do not fancy them, it is because they are unattractive. Germaine Greer
"Women have very little idea of how much men hate them.", Germaine Greer
