Wanting to let go because you know what’s best for you, but feel trapped and “too in love” to do so. Believing everything you hear when you know you’re continuously being deceived. Putting up with excuses/empty promises but know deep down, nothing will EVER change. The vicious cycle never ends. So… do you want, need or deserve this? The answer, is no.
