Given the recent hype, I'm sure you've heard about this video but if you think it's promoting physical abuse, you've missed the point entirely.
We're creating generation upon generation of melodramatic, self-mutilating, emtionally scarred kids who believe a relationship is not real unless it's intense. They watch TV and music videos and think that real life is a reflection of this...just like little girls wanting to look like the models in magazines. It's not real babes.
If it hurts, if he or she lies, if you cry more than you smile...it ain't real kiddo. And here's the kicker...if they cheat, it means that they do not care. End of fucking story.
I'm so tired of every get together with my friends being about how terrible men are and how badly they play women...perhaps, just maybe, you're attracting the wrong type of man? Ask yourself why? You're never going to be treated well or loved until you love yourself. Stop chasing after the bad boy, stop believing that the second/third/fourth time it'll finally work out.
It's simple...if you don't want to be treated badly....stop allowing them.
