these past 2 months. Most of it has been very painful.
The biggest thing is that you can't trust words. The true intent of those around you is best reflected in actions. People can smile and say all sorts of nice things while stabbing you in the back. Families do it. Friends do it.

I have always caved in and crawled back. I loved them all so much, I allowed myself to be whatever they wanted me to be. I still love them, but I refuse to turn around and take another jab.

Now I have to work on why I love people who treat me this way.
Honestly I don't know. That is my next hurdle.

    I've been in this same place, not that long ago either. Once you take the time to really evaluate the relationships you WILL be much happier and healthier. Its hard but believe me worth the work. When I did this it actually strengthened a couple of really negative relationships, I told them I was not ok with how things were and if they valued my presences in their life it needed to change and fortunately it did. Good luck and if you need a cheerleader to help you keep going message me... I know how hard it can be.
