- Independence and safety (not having to rely on abusive ppl, getting to control how you spend your time and money)
- Experiences (travel, events, vacations, entertainment)
- Health (medical care duh, good food, good location, reduced stress)
- Opportunity (car, being able to move, having a safety net, “looking professional”)

Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.

Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.

Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.
Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.
Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.
Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.

No longer walking on eggshells and being able to be completely me has been an amazing transition in my life.
We all have BAD MOMENTS
We all SCREAM sometimes
We all CRY
We all tell the same LIES
We all do things that people CAN’T UNDERSTAND, feel like GIVING UP
But in the END
We are in this TOGETHER
And TOGETHER we can survive through it ALL
Time to bring this back
This is the cutest thing I’ve seen ever
He totally thought wednesday could lift him i’m dead
Honestly she probably could have.
The Addamses may well be the healthiest, most functional family unit to ever grace the small screen.
The next time there’s an awkward silence, try whispering, “Did you forget your line?”
I ADORE THIS.

Они точно знали, что хозяйка их приюта, Кейт Арджент, продает детей на органы, но доказательств у них не было, а на слово двум сироткам никто не поверит…оставалось хватать Cтайлза в охапку (а Cтайлзу хватать своего потрепанного, одноглазого Скотта) и валить ко всем чертям.

Looks like I’m celebrating Dino-vember this year!
Are you ever just overwhelmed by the horrifying thought that maybe, nobody ACTUALLY wants you around? And it’s not that you think everyone hates you, but it’s just that you’re not special to anyone? And that its really kind of sucky that you’re about 98% sure that nobody thinks “Wow, I just really like talking to her.” and that you could probably just disappear without anyone caring that much?
Out of every pun and play on words I’ve seen on this site, this is the one that makes me so unreasonably angry.
I don’t understand why people feel the need to give robots gender ??????? seriously their gender is
