ABUSIVE MEN COME in every personality type, arise from good childhoods and bad ones, are macho men or gentle, “liberated” men. No psychological test can distinguish an abusive man from a respectful one. Abusiveness is not a product of a man’s emotional injuries or of deficits in his skills. In reality, abuse springs from a man’s early cultural training, his key male role models, and his peer influences. In other words, abuse is a problem of values, not of psychology.
Lundy Bancroft, “Why does He Do That? Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men.” (via womentoadmire)
An abuser can seem emotionally needy. You can get caught in a trap of catering to him, trying to fill a bottomless pit. But he’s not so much needy as entitled, so no matter how much you give him, it will never be enough. He will just keep coming up with more demands because he believes his needs are your responsibility, until you feel drained down to nothing.
— from Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men by Lundy Bancroft (via sofonisbaanguissola)
Unfortunately, an abuser can sometimes succeed at convincing people that his partner is so irrational and out of control, that her judgment is so poor, that she has to be saved from herself. Never believe a man’s claim that he has to harm his partner in order to protect her; only abusers think this way.

“Sometimes you’re confronted with an opportunity, and it asks you to do something scary. You have to decide if you’re not even going to try or if you’re going to go for it. You might fall flat on your face… but this was my dream, so not getting on with it just wasn’t an option.”

Have you ever met someone and grow attached to them and think “it’s gonna hurt real bad when they leave”
