Daily Prompt: Take It From Me
“Get out of your relationship, it’s not good for you!”
“You don’t need to be in a relationship! There is nothing wrong with being single.”
“You won’t find who is right for you while you stay in this bad relationship.”
I have GREAT relationship advice but I never take it myself. I have found myself repeatedly in predominantly emotionally abusive and controlling relationships, knowing I should leave and I do not.
I am not in that relationship now but majority of these horrible relationships were ended by my partner because they got tired of me. I should have ended these relationships when they told me what to wear, who I could hang out, who I could talk to, where I could go, when they went through my phone, email, and journal, when they called me names and made me feel like I was nothing.
It makes me feel like a hypocrite but it’s always harder to do things when it is our own live and we have to experience the consequences first hand.
