… ex not to end things doesn’t make me think she’s lying. It makes me think she’s telling the truth. Being emotionally abused and constantly gaslit robs you of your self-esteem.

You can’t bear to lose them because there is this tiny, sinister voice inside you now constantly whispering that you are only worth as much as you mean to them.
