"But he keeps calling" she said. You think the devil is going to let you walk out of hell without a fight? Bad men want love too. It's your job as a woman not to confuse desire with what you deserve. It's not a question of whether or not he loves you, it's how much bullshit that comes with the "I love you." How much bullshit you're going to put up with. Remember, he can be sorry from anywhere. It's your choice of whether it's in your bed, or the curb.
He tried but ultimately me leaving him crushed his heart and soul. I was tired of being his punching bag. He's lucky I didn't go to the police, period. Especially when he wouldnt leave me alone years after we were through...history repeats I suppose. Ugh.
A common tactic in toxic relationships is "stonewalling" or using silence as a form of manipulation. Example: A survivor confronts a toxic person with how their actions have hurt them and rather than address the issue, the toxic person pulls away and says nothing. This is done to try and invalidate the survivor's feelings and, most importantly, to help the toxic person avoid any responsibility for their actions.
Why do people compare bad men and skank women to dogs? Dogs are loyal, faithful, and love you to the bitter end. Call'em cats, those fuckers roam around, run off, come home pregnant by someone they just met and will turn on you in a heartbeat.
