Most relationships taught me the more chances you give ppl, the less they value you. They aren't afraid to lose you bcoz they know no matter what, you won't walk away. Never let anybody get too comfortable with disrespecting you. Love yourself and choose distance over disrespect.
In healthy relationships we need to talk more about degrees or levels of ‘broken up’. You can meet someone who is technically not with their ex but still completely enmeshed, corded, obsessed, preoccupied, controlled by them or giving them so much of their energy and attention.
The emotionally abused or neglected adult has learned to compulsively read people. To notice every change in mood, voice, tone, or facial expression. We subconsciously are looking for a sign we are losing connection or that we’ve upset someone.
