I have a friend currently getting out of an abusive relationship, yesterday she overheard me and my gf talking on the phone and started crying, saying it sounded so sweet and she missed being with someone who was genuinely kind to her and made her feel safe.
abusive relationships warp your idea of what is normal and make it hard to remember what love is actually supposed to feel like. if you are feeling like that, remember that you should be in a relationship with someone who is one of your best friends. someone who makes you happy significantly more often than they make you upset. someone who takes your feelings seriously and is always working with you, not against you. someone who is your safety/home away from the stresses of the world, not another major source of stress.
