It’s becoming apparent to me that I’ve only ever dated people who were “a challenge” to me in a way that they were often led astray and uninterested… This is the first time I’ve dated someone who has challenged me mentally and made me want to be a better person just for myself and not to try to get her to stay. So that’s pretty cool.

Reminder that abusers will grasp for ways to continue to control you even if you are no longer their partner, family, or friend.
