If you’ve ever been made to feel guilty about trying to leave a manipulative, abusive relationship, give today’s recommendation a listen and fortify yourself — you don’t need to take that shit from an abusive partner. If they only uplifted you to try to control you, they can go fuck themselves; a gift with strings attached is no gift, and you shouldn’t feel guilty for spurning it.
“Don’t You Want Me” by The Human League is one of my very favorite songs. It’s gloomy, it’s brooding, it’s pulsating, it’s relentless — it’s my vibe. And it’s real fun to duet with someone at karaoke; though I confess I love taking both parts for myself.
Give it a listen with me today, friends.
