It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken!



I’ve a friend who struggles with her relationship a very toxic relationship. She calls me when shit hits the fan, and we talk about him. She cries, I listen, she complains about him, and I give my advice for the thousandth time. it’s always the same it goes something like this: If someone say one thing, but do another, you are lying to yourself if you don’t listen to their actions. But if you are truthful with yourself, you will save yourself a lot of emotional pain. Telling yourself the truth about the situation may hurt, but healing is on the way, and it’s just a matter of time before things will be better for you.


If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person doesn’t walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him. Walking away may hurt for while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want. I hope this time it sinks in.

Love yourself first.

I have a girlfriend that does the exact same thing. It's hard to listen to her heart breaking over and over. I don't think they ever "hear" you, until they are ready. Le Sigh.

I couldn't agree more. I used to have a friend that did the same thing -- and I just recently learned she's back in that relationship.

Everyone should love & respect themselves... but sadly, this doesn't happen very often.

It's a mystery why it's so hard for us to know what is and isn't good for us at times, isn't it?

YEP!!! VERY WELL SAID! And it's so hard not to show your frustation with that friend (or sibling in my case)as well!

Some people are just afraid of being alone not matter what the heartache.
