We end up in toxic relationships because we don't stand up for ourselves early on when red flags occur.
We let shit slide because we fear we will lose their companionship if we don't. We fear we're asking "too much" when we communicate our boundaries. But how long will you let disrespect and neglect go? How many times will you abandon your needs for their comfort? How long will you show them that your needs and wants will always come second to their needs and wants?
At some point you have to develop health barriers that honor how you want to be treated; you're responsible for your experience, nobody else is.
