y’all don’t care about victims/survivors if you only care about Perfect Victims
i’m probably just gonna... boost this daily tbh.
survivors aren’t always going to be kind and considerate or Pure and sweet or even non-toxic.
we pick up bad behaviors in order to survive sometimes.
sometimes we are angry and harsh and overwhelmed.
stop dismissing us just because you don’t like us.
like i was abusive and manipulative and very hard to be around for a Long Time for most people.
i learned bad behaviors from my parents (as we do) and didn’t realize they weren’t healthy or good.
it takes time to unlearn those things even after your realize it. especially if you are still in a traumatizing and stressful environment or situation.
i’m not asking anyone to go through abuse to help someone learn, but i am expecting empathy and understanding.
Thank you. Personal deets.
@gingerrroot thank you for this thread. It is v important and I was this person for a while as well. There are many ppl out there who haven't had any positive relationship models, and that combined with trauma is a difficult soup. My parents fought constantly, and it took me far too long to realize the romantic relationship I was in was just mirroring their dysfunction and I was being a butt too. 💜
