You’ll never believe it until it happens to you. You will never believe that you can be that person in an abusive and draining relationship. You truly do not understand people when they are looking at you with this face of disbelief.
You think, “He cheats, I leave,” but the scary part is, no matter how inevitable a split may be, it’s not that simple.
Work towards finding peace in the fact that nobody has it together at 22, or 27, or even ever. We’re all trying to figure it out, and all trying to pretend like we know what we’re doing.
But you cannot be the exception to the rule. You cannot try to use your love to fix someone who is broken.
