even if you know for sure that somebody loves you, if they make you feel like an idiot all the time and don’t treat you like an equal and never give any indication that your help or your contributions are valuable
THAT’S NOT GOOD
This is important. And something that is really difficult to live by. I have had people that I know love me but treat me rather poorly, and it’s terribly difficult to leave a relationship (any type of relationship, romantic or otherwise) that’s like that, so I just stay. But I shouldn’t. And neither should you. Be good to yourselves, people of tumblr. Be friends with people who treat you nicely. Be stronger and better at leaving than I am.
