    Loving dangerously toxic people

    How do I properly punish myself?

    I'm slowly coming to terms with the fact I'm a bad person, many people have made me realise lately how much of an emotional abuser and toxic person I am. So what do I do to get the full affect of making sure I feel as much pain as possible that I deserve? They're right when saying the abused...
