It’s funny how toxic our relationship became. Well, not funny ha-ha, funny in a sad, peculiar, upsetting way.

Because it makes me feel so incredibly stupid now that I didn’t see how manipulative and selfish you had become. I always saw the good in everything you did, and no matter how much it hurt, I convinced myself it was a problem with me and not you.

I guess I should have left a long time ago.. And now that I have, I can’t believe how much of life I’ve been missing out on.

When you are in an abusive relationship the other person will always protect you from the outside world- only to hurt you themself. It’s why the pain is so alluring. It’s tempered with “love” and predictable, without it you are just an abusee waiting to be abused.

He was abusive,
But not the kind you hear about
He rarely ever laid a hand on me
But I’m telling you,
His words were the bullets and
My chest was his target and
My heart would turn blue
Each time he spoke
—  e.k.s.

You are absolutely not being too sensitive.  It’s important to remember that a friendship is a kind of relationship, and any form of relationship can be abusive or have aspects of abuse.  Your “friend”, if she’s still in your life, needs to not be.  You deserve friends who value you and don’t ever do anything with the intention of hurting or manipulating you.  Platonic friendships. can absolutely be abusive.
