I have an ex who I constantly “feel for,” meaning — I feel bad that he’s “trapped” in a toxic marriage. But he chose that path. He made his decision. He could leave like all the other great dads that I know, but he doesn’t. He chooses to stay. And because of his choice, he’ll not only be stuck with someone who cheated on him, but he’ll be stuck with someone who makes his life — according to him — a living hell. Their relationship is one of the most toxic I’ve ever witnessed, and yet he doesn’t leave. That’s weakness.
If you find yourself starting to fall for the same jerk repeatedly, remember that someone, somewhere is dealing with his true colors. And if he ever breaks with her and gets with you, chances are he’ll most likely treat you the same way.
How often do we say “He changed!” “She changed!” Unless it’s over the course of many years I don’t believe people change — I believe they’re just showing you who they really are. Sometimes it’s a simple incompatibility, and sometimes it’s a gigantic RED FLAG 🔴 Whatever the case, those initial ideas of who we THOUGHT they’d be is what we really want.
What kind of partner do you want? Here’s a hint: it’s everything you were hoping and thinking the last person was.
No amount of being nice and proving theres love in the world will change someones mind if they really, really want to be an asshole, liar or cheater.
