"Women hear it all the time from men. You;re overreacting, we tell them. Don't worry about it so much, your over-thinking it. Don't be so sensitive. Don't be crazy. It's a form of gaslighting; telling women that their feelings are wrong, that they don't have the right to feel the way they do. Minimizing somebody else's feelings is a way of controlling them. If they no longer trust their own feelings and instincts, they come to rely on someone else to tell them how they're supposed to feel." by Shelly Raquel

For them, it is the worst. You can't just disregard someone's feelings as nothing just because some people could have it worse than them. Sure, there probably are people who have it worse; but you can't just go around telling them that like what they feel doesn't mean jackdiddlysquat. You can't just manipulate a depressed person like that either, like their feelings are obsolete. Their feelings are just as important as yours, and if you're trying to help them; help them. Don't make them.. by kristy

It’s just that I don’t want to be somebody’s crush. If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don’t want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it too.  — Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by proteamundi

'MY HUSBAND WON'T TALK WITH ME!' What do you do? Many men who shut down when asked personal questions about their feelings do so because they don’t know the answer and they feel stupid and shamed. Instead of reflecting why they don’t know or figuring out how to find out, they lash out and blame the person who made them feel that way. -Leslie Vernick by Jinx62

There is no such thing as a good slave owner. They owned my PEOPLE & used them as checks and balances. This cycle continues with prison and brutality. I do not want to hear shit about “Why can only Black people say this or that?” I don’t want to hear **** about “we’re all human.” And by the way, not one of those slaves are at rest. Those spirits were so alive, you could feel their presence, their pain & someday, their revenge. by amber

Tell everyone you know: My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook. And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they're doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel-and then, you'll love them all. Because the only reason you don't love them, is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good. ~Esther Hicks by terri.strongdufrene

Pinner:  "Psychopaths enjoy hurting people in order to see the reaction they create. Seeing that they can cause someone pain, anger, fear, distress, confusion, etc. makes them feel powerful. They enjoy the rush of power they get being able to manipulate someone else's emotions and responses that way. This is why not responding to them or reacting and having no or minimal contact is so important." - B and The Beast. by anita

They need our eyes on them as they show their latest skill, our ears open to hear their latest story, our minds and hearts fully present when we sit with them to play, to read, to be.
