The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Beautiful.
- I didn’t know people could be so cruel and neglectful. I only saw feelings, and needs, and possibilities, and ways to relieve myself.
- I began using their strategies in order to survive the relationship/live with them.
- I neglected myself and put up with neglect until I was so angry that I screamed, panicked, and yelled at unexpected times.
- I cried in submission, I shared pain, I listened for things that would direct me back out of the mess, I listened to others with empathy, I began to focus on my basic health and needs, I began to grow up.
