Pardon Me

Pardon me 

Pardon me, but you really hurt my feelings when you thought it was okay to pull me around by my arm like I was a child, just because I was YOUR girlfriend.

It hurt when you made me feel like your time was more valuable than my own and put me down when I didn’t comply with YOUR schedule.

 

Pardon me, but you really hurt my feelings when you thought it was okay to use YOUR wealth to make me feel small and dependent on you. Did it make you feel better about yourself? Because it made me feel like crap

 

Pardon me, but you really hurt my feelings when you dismissed my feelings and concerns because they weren’t issues of your own. I felt belittled and invisible when you turned on your gaslight “charm” I must be so silly and imagining it all. Right?

 

Pardon me, but you really hurt my feelings when you thought it was okay to have sex with me when I said I didn’t want to, just because I was YOURS. I’m not a thing. I’m a person and I’m ALLOWED TO SAY NO!

 

Pardon me, but you really hurt my feelings when you used intimidation to have everything your way. I felt powerless and weak.

 

Pardon me, but you really hurt my feelings when you’d offer me to your friends like I was YOUR TOY. I felt humiliated and like an object.

 

Pardon me, but you really hurt my feelings when you used my mental health issues against me. You shouldn’t have said things like “who’s going to want to take care of someone like that?” I felt ashamed that I let you toy with my already broken emotions.

 

Pardon me, but I won’t let you hurt my feelings anymore because I deserve to be treated like a human being and with respect regardless of my mental health issues, my physical capabilities or my financial status.
