If there’s one thing I’ve learned in this whole process, it’s that we become like the people we spend time with, for better or for worse.
Instead of trying to have someone fix you, rip open your chest and show the world that you’re just like everyone else. You suffer, you cry, you feel afraid, you get angry, you put yourself down and you want to run and hide. You are a beautiful hopeless mess, just like the rest of us.
So often we break up with someone as a deluded attempt to fix what’s really going on inside of us. It doesn’t have to be that way.
