I repost this because I’m afraid I’m heading down this road. Actually, I’ve already tripped my way along it. I know this is not a true solution to fixing a relationship. In fact it’s abusive. I know there are better and healthier ways to heal what might need mending. But, I do not know if I am strong enough to be the real me. Because I am terrifying, strange, and beautiful. And I would love to be accepted as I am.
