if you tell someone ‘no’ and they respond with “FINE……….” or “guess ill be all alone….” or “its okay im used to having my hopes crushed…….” or any of that guilt-inducing passive aggressive fuckery, cut them straight out of your life because you never deserve to feel bad for setting boundaries or speaking your mind.

Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family
Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?
In Year One Molly Weasley knit Harry a Weasley family sweater and made him homemade chocolate so he would have something to open on Christmas DON’T TOUCH ME
could I also just add that kids from abusive households tend to assume that yelling is directed at them and/or it heralds something bad for them so she’s making extra sure that he knows that this is not his fault and she’s not actually mad at him.
Every time I watch tangled I end up in tears. when I was a kid my mum physically and emotionally abused me. And I’ve never seen the way she treated me in a film before until now.
The bit that gets me is Rapunzel’s love for Gothel. Gothel brought her up, taught her to read and write and walk. She is her mother as far as emotional connection goes. You can see this in the picture where they’re in the mirror. The pure love in Rapunzel’s eyes and Gothel is looking at herself. Gothel did all this for the eternal life Rapunzel comes with but in turn, Rapunzel loves her no matter how horrible she is to her. And that is how I feel towards my mum no matter how awful she is/was to me. So I will always love her in spite of the fact I shouldn’t.
So thank you Disney. For showing me that what I’ve been through is normal and it’s okay to feel how I do. And thank you tumblr for being a place safe enough that I feel I can tell you all this.
