    I am somebody that has had relationships that I guess technically fall under the window or it’s getting within the window of abusive and coming out of those situations it is important at least I find to recognize what my contributions have been in order to allow those things to happen and to continue to happen or to get worse over time which technically is what defines an abusive situation and it is two people that make it happen and I love what Jator says across-the-board but specifically when he says or informs everybody to ask themselves what does this person mean to me and why do I care about their opinion and that is a huge absolutely humongous question that I think pertains to everybody that specifically for those that are dealing with criticisms from those in their lives daily
