things of interest to me (Myla).

I don’t know where to put this so it’s going on Tumblr

The truth of the matter is, when you’ve been in a relationship with someone abrasive and manipulative, it might stay with you for a long time. You might get over it, or you might think you’re over it.

But little things start to trickle into your life after that relationship ends.

Sometimes it comes in little spurts and sometimes in an all consuming typhoon.

Sure, you may have escaped the shackles of that relationship prison itself, and, if you’re lucky, that person altogether. But with every new person, friendship or love interest alike, the thing in your brain that says “this is good” could be that thing that once told you to love the monster.

Trust is a mystery and every encounter can be a blessing or a straight up nightmare.

It’ll pass, I’m sure.

When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty. By Stevie Nicks (via larmoyante)
