I don't feel anything,
unless we're living and dying for each other,
every second of our lives.

Anonymous said: What are the signs of emotional abuse?

tsunime:

mental-health-advice:

Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.

Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.

Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.

Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.

Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.

Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,

Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.

Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.

Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.

Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.

Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.

Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.

Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.

Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.

Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.

Love, Salem

The verse I was working on has the same chord progression and a similar lyrical flow as “Working for the weekend” and now I have to scrap the whole thing. God dammit.

An old russian lady I was transporting the other day told me that her neighbors dog kept shitting in her yard. In order to get back at them, she collected all of the dog shit and put it all in their mailbox. I couldn’t contain myself.

Well, I *officially* start working as a full-fledged paramedic on Thursday. I’ve spent the better part of three years working towards this milestone. Now that it’s here, I’m terrified. What did I get myself into?

she calms my heart down
but I’m too scared to tell her
how crazy I can get sometimes

So like, I didn’t watch the VMA’s (why would you!?) but, from what I gather, Beyonce just put the word “FEMINIST” in that background during her show and all of a sudden she’s some sort of huge fucking forerunner of feminism? Am I missing something?
