Get used to the apologies. Get used to the mental or emotional exhaustion after any form of expression relating to their abuse.
Not everyone was made to love that way, and that’s all right, because most people will love you back in the best way they know how. You have to accept the different kind of loves there are in the world if you want to exist happily in it.

Since you were a child, you learned to begin your sentences and end them with an apology. As though your existence was a burden for everyone. As if your questions were not important.
Being grateful does not mean you have to forget the wrong that was done to you. Being grateful means you remember that there is a lot of good that is left in your life.
