“A toxic person will thank you for dealing with their crap but bash you for walking away for better.”
I knew it was toxic but I just couldn’t leave him alone. I had so much hope in us. Truth be told, there was no us. It was just me. I’d given three years to this man. He pursued me. Heavily. So to say I was confused would be a light tap dance. I’m happy to say I finally got the guts to walk away. One text. He thought I was doing my random pleading with him. However, what he didn’t know is I had finally decided to put myself first.
What makes us stay when we’ve been given red flags? For me, I was NOT about to deal with having my ego bruised again. Horrible. I know. I felt like I was losing yet again. I was failing at another relationship.
