emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.

“Funny things, horses. Dirty, dangerous, greedy beasts, they get into your blood like a virus, and once you’ve got it, there’s no cure.
